Celebrating National Apprentice Week
West Sussex County Council is celebrating National Apprentice Week, (Monday February 7 – Friday 11), with a series of events around the county.
An apprenticeship is a nationally recognised training programme combining real work with learning and training, both on the job and at college. As employees, apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills.
The Apprenticeships Team will be hosting a series of drop-in sessions at several Libraries for people to find out about the latest job opportunities and information about the scheme. They will be at:
• Worthing Library, 10am -12 noon and Littlehampton Library, 2 – 4pm, on Monday February 7
• Chichester Library, 10am – 12 noon and Bognor Regis Library, 2 – 4pm, on Tuesday February 8
• Crawley Library, 10am –12 noon, on Wednesday February 9
• Horsham Library, 10am – 12 noon, on Thursday February 10
• Haywards Heath Library 10am –12 noon on Friday February 11
The stands will be at the Libraries all day but will have someone to discuss apprenticeship opportunities at the times stated above.
On Wednesday February 9, 11am – 3pm, the Apprenticeships and Future Jobs Fund teams will be at the Drill Hall, Denne Hill, Horsham, advising people on how to become an apprentice.
At the Horsham Connexions Centre on Thursday February 10, 1.30pm – 6.30pm, young people at the Y Centre, Horsham will have the chance to talk to training providers looking for apprentices and Connexions personal advisers.
