Apprenticeship Advice Week-now taking bookings

From the 11th November 2019, County Training will be running a week-long advice week across Shropshire for young people leaving education next summer and also for anyone currently seeking an apprenticeship.

The advice sessions will take place in Shrewsbury, Telford, Oswestry, Whitchurch, Hereford and Ludlow between 10am and 6pm and all those exploring their next steps are urged to book a slot.

There will be advice and guidance on apprenticeships and pre-apprenticeship programmes, CV and application form guidance and details of current apprenticeship openings with local employers.

County Training’s apprenticeships can start at any time of the year and anyone aged 16 or above, with the right entry requirements, could be eligible.

Heidi Broxton, who is currently studying her Level 3 Business administration qualification with County Training, thinks apprenticeships are a great way into full time employment and commented: “I feel I am more employable as a result of the qualifications and the evidence. My role now is working in the diabetes specialist service and can include anything from making appointments to writing clinical letters and organising events. I feel much more confident talking to customers now and would say to anyone thinking of doing an apprenticeship, to definitely do it. There is nothing to pay, you earn while you learn and are well supported.”

County Training are advertising a range of apprenticeship vacancies and training opportunities with businesses large and small throughout Shropshire and Hereford. The experienced apprenticeship team offer qualifications in Agriculture, Business Administration, Childcare, Customer Service, Hairdressing, Health and Social Care, Horticulture, Hospitality, IT, Team Leading, Motor Vehicle, Plumbing, Support Teaching, Warehousing and Storage.

County Training also offers the Advance pre-apprenticeship programme, which is available to anyone aged 16-18. This includes vocational tasters, so you can learn more about what you enjoy, employability skills and maths and English if you missed out on the grades you need.
