Students who have just completed their A-levels and GCSE’s are being invited to find out more about apprenticeship opportunities at two roadshow events – but apprenticeships aren’t just for young people.

Kirklees Apprenticeships for All – a service provided by Kirklees Council – together with C+K, are hosting events in Huddersfield and Cleckheaton to put the spotlight on current apprenticeship opportunities across the district.

The ‘Apprenticeships Now’ events aim to connect those who are looking for apprenticeship positions, with local employers and training providers who are looking to fill their current vacancies.

The events are perfectly timed for those individuals who have just received their A-level results and are considering their next steps.

They will have the opportunity to speak to the event organisers about apprenticeship routes and qualifications, the support available and information and guidance on the application process.

They will also be able to make useful contacts and find out more about apprenticeship offers available right now. More than a dozen local employers and training providers will be represented.

Alongside those receiving exam results, this event is also for anyone already in work and considering an apprenticeship route to benefit their career growth.

The Kirklees Apprenticeships for All team will be available at the event to discuss career aspirations and provide support on how this way of learning, whilst in work, could help people develop and progress in their career.

Clr Graham Turner, Cabinet member for regeneration, said: “Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to connect good workers in need of experience with supportive employers in need of good workers.

“A good apprenticeship provides skills for life and great employment opportunities. These events are perfectly timed for those who’ve just got their A-level results, but they’re a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking for their next career step.”

The events are free and no booking is required.
