Apprenticeship Open Evening

An opportunity for budding Apprentices to meet local employers

York College is hosting an Apprenticeship Open Evening on Wednesday, 9th February. The event presents an opportunity for budding apprentices to meet with local employers and for local employers to come face to face with the workforce of the future.

School leavers and their parents/guardians will be able to meet with some of the city’s largest local employers and see the learning facilities at York College. There will also be presentations on what it is like to be an apprentice studying at the college.

Assistant Principal for Employer Engagement at York College, Louise Lawrence-Crockford, comments: “Apprenticeships can ensure that a workforce has the practical skills and qualifications employers need. The mixture of on and off job learning ensures that apprentices learn the skills that work best for individual organisations, they can help businesses across all sectors, offering a route to harness fresh and new talent. It is a fact that UK businesses consider skills shortages and recruitment difficulties a bigger threat to performance than soaring spending. More than a quarter of these rate this form of vocational training higher than any other qualification.”

To find out more about apprenticeships come along to the York College Apprenticeship Open Evening on Wednesday, 9th February (6.00pm to 8.30pm).
