Apprenticeship Open Events

Apprenticships

Cheshire West and Chester Council is holding four apprenticeship open events across the borough to help young people find an apprenticeship vacancy suited to their needs.

Apprenticeships combine working with studying for a work-based qualification — from GCSEs to qualifications which are equivalent to a degree.
This mix of education and work experience is a great start for young people and can mean they end up well-skilled and debt-free.

The government has committed to create 3 million apprenticeships by 2020 and they are a crucial part of ensuring that Cheshire West and Chester remains a great place to do business.

Why are these events being held?
Employers from around the borough have stated that they are having problems recruiting enough local young people to fill their apprenticeship vacancies.
At the same time young people have stated that they do not always feel adequately informed of the opportunities available.

To help both employers and young people, four events have been organised across the borough aimed at young people aged between 16 and 19 who are unsure about their future direction.
Employers and training providers will be able to set up stands and young people can drop in to meet them, find out more about the live vacancies available in the local area and even begin their applications on the day.

There will also be advice and guidance available for young people to ensure they make informed decisions about their futures.

Event Details
All the events are drop in sessions and will run from 4pm to 6pm.

Dates and venues are:
7 September Mid Cheshire College, Winsford Campus
8 September West Cheshire College, Ellesmere Port Campus
14 September Castle Park, Frodsham
15 September Chester Town Hall, Chester
