Apprenticeship Open Day
On Saturday 7th February Tresham College of Further and Higher Education hosted its very first Apprenticeship Open Day at the college’s Corby campus. The event highlighted the variety of apprenticeship vacancies the college has available for anyone aged 16 or over who wants to kick start their career by earning whilst they are learning.
Evolve Business Training – Tresham’s employer focussed training arm – had its team of experts and assessors on hand to provide information about the apprenticeships available, the employers Tresham work with, career prospects for apprentices and the financial support available to young people and their parents.
The first event was attended well with over 60 people receiving expert information surrounding apprenticeships and career prospects as well as having the opportunity to view over 100 vacancies currently available. Since 2012, Tresham has recruited more than 1,500 apprentices to work in growing industries including rail engineering, digital media and construction within businesses of all sizes across the county and East Midlands.
Apprenticeships are real jobs with training that allow anyone aged 16 or over to earn whilst they learn alongside gaining a nationally recognised qualification. They take between 1 – 5 years to complete and cover a range of industries to degree level giving apprentices a kick start to their career with many paying up to £300 per week.
