Rise to the top with Apprenticeships
Tresham is celebrating National Apprenticeship Week 2016 by hosting a number of events open to the public and local business leaders from 14th to 18th March.
A dedicated information and open evening for apprenticeships will be taking place on Tuesday 15th March from 4-6pm at the college’s Oakley Road, Corby campus with the opportunity to take part in short ‘Have a Go’ activities in industries including:
- Engineering (Pneumatics, Making a Brass Key Fob)
- Construction (Brickwork, Carpentry)
- Computing and Digital Media
Apprenticeship advisers will be on hand to provide advice about studying the programme, current vacancies, the various employers Tresham work with and the financial support that is available. An opportunity to sign up to the National Apprenticeship Service website will also be available which is ideal for young people leaving school this summer.
An apprenticeship combines on-the-job and college based learning for anyone aged 16 or over. With the opportunity to earn a wage whilst studying for the technical and essential skills needed for the industry it’s a great way to get started on a career path or improve qualifications for an existing job.
Tresham provides apprenticeships in a variety of industries allowing young people to learn the technical skills required for the industry they want to pursue a career within including:
- Health and Social Care
- Hospitality and Catering
- IT and Computing
- Digital Media
- Motor Vehicle / Mechanic
- Warehousing and Storage
- Accountancy and Finance
- Business Administration
- Childcare and Teaching Assistant
- Customer Service
- Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy

Following this, a dedicated Business Breakfast will be held on Friday 18th March from 8am – 9am at the college’s Windmill Avenue, Kettering campus for business leaders to find out more about offering apprenticeships to bridge any skills gaps in their workforce and to improve productivity and competitiveness.
Phillip Hollobone MP for Kettering will be attending the business breakfast to highlight the government’s 100 in 100 apprenticeships campaign which aims to build on the commitment to create 3million apprenticeship starts by 2020 by creating at least 100 new apprenticeships in 100 days starting on 11th February.
