Apprenticeships – Council run two information workshops!

Besi Besemar June 15, 2018

Kick off your new career by becoming an apprentice?

The City Council’s apprenticeship team are hosting an information event on Wednesday, June 20 from 4.30pm to 7.30pm at Hove Town Hall.

Apprenticeships aren’t just for school and college leavers. Anyone over the age of 16 can apply.

Apprenticeships give you the opportunity to earn while you learn and gain a nationally recognised qualification.

The Hove Town Hall event is a chance to find out what it’s like to be an apprentice and how it can benefit you.

You’ll be able to speak to a number of employers who offer apprenticeships as well as training providers.

Mairna Marzoug, an apprentice in the council’s transport team said: “Getting the experience while getting a qualification and earning money has really given me a good foundation.

“At only 19 I’ve still got so much experience on my CV that I wouldn’t have had if I’d just gone to college.”

The chair of the council’s children, young people and skills committee, Councillor Dan Chapman, said: “Employers quite often offer permanent jobs to people who have impressed them during their apprenticeships.

“So whether you want a great introduction to the world of work or a career change, an apprenticeship could be just what you’re looking for.”
