Ever wondered what it’s like to be an apprentice? ‘An evening with our trailblazers’ is great opportunity to find out more about what you need to do to become an apprentice, what careers are available and which employers are offering them.

The event will take place at our Booth Lane Campus on Wednesday, 6 March from 6pm – 7pm as part of National Apprenticeship Week.

  • Meet employers who recruit apprentices and talk to them about different career paths – often the best motivation and advice comes from industry professionals.
  • Talk to current apprentices about their experience of being an apprentice.
  • Discuss your current situation with our advisors and tell them what you’re looking for.

Blaze your own trail and book your place today or call 01604 734323 to find out more.
