Those interested in finding out more information about becoming an apprentice are encouraged to come along on Tuesday 4th February from 4-7pm, as part of the National Apprenticeship Week initiative, which runs from 3rd to 7th February 2020. There is the opportunity to meet with employers from a range of different sectors including Dorset Healthcare, Simone Thomas and Cuddles Day Nursery. Parents can also attend an ‘Advice Zone’ Q&A which will provide support on common questions surrounding Apprenticeships.
A number of interactive workshops will be run throughout the evening, covering useful topics such as ‘how to apply for an Apprenticeship’ and ‘how to write a CV’. Former apprentices will also give talks about their first-hand experience of life as an apprentice and will be available to answer any questions that attendees may have.
Matt Butcher, Commercial Director of Bournemouth & Poole College, said: “We are proud to be hosting the first event of this kind at AFC Bournemouth. As the largest provider of Apprenticeships in the area, we are passionate about promoting the benefits and providing information on how to learn while you earn.
“When planning this event, we took the time to assess what students and their parents are keen to learn about apprenticeships and how we can best convey this information in an engaging way. The introduction of our Advice Zone and interactive workshops means that all attendees can get involved and have their questions answered in a fun, creative way.”
