With more than 250 vacancies for apprentices in West Sussex, is it hoped people will be inspired at an Apprenticeship Jobs Fair coming to Worthing.
Now in its second year, the Apprenticeship Jobs Fair will be held at Worthing Town Hall, entry via Stoke Abbott Road, on Thursday 20 October from 2pm to 4pm.
An apprenticeship provides an opportunity to earn while you learn gaining job specific skills, experience and qualifications.
Subjects range from social care to hair and beauty, estate agency to web development, dog grooming to marketing and everything in between.
Stephen Hillier, County Council Cabinet Member for Children – Start of Life, said: “Back in March, we held the county’s first ever graduation ceremony for apprentices and it was such a momentous occasion. Nearly everyone who attended had an inspirational story to tell as they had used their apprenticeships to develop and move forward with their career.
“More than 400 people have recently completed Advanced and Higher Apprenticeships in West Sussex and I hope this number will continue to grow. There are lots of businesses, here in West Sussex, who are committed to employing apprentices and I thank them for all that they do.
“The young people in our county have an incredibly diverse range of talents and I hope that many look to apprenticeships as the start of a bright and exciting future.”
The fair will be an opportunity for job seekers, businesses and residents to find out about apprenticeships and the opportunities they provide.
