Don't miss out on Bexley's free apprenticeship event
PUBLISHED: 16:00 23 February 2018
Hundreds of local residents are set to find out more about apprenticeship opportunities in the borough at the council's annual information event.
The free opportunity provides the chance for young people, parents and carers to speak with universities, colleges, training providers and employers to find out more about the different opportunities available, from traineeships to higher and degree level qualifications.
Last year, the Civic Offices in Bexleyheath saw more than 500 young people and their families through its doors, eager to find out more about the different opportunities in Bexley.
Cabinet Member for education, cllr John Fuller said: “Our event aims to highlight the opportunities and support available in Bexley, and to help young people understand how an apprenticeship can benefit them, whether they’re still considering post-16 options or looking at alternatives to university.”
The event for young people in years 11-13 and their parents/carers is open from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on March 12 at the Civic Offices, 2 Watling Street, Bexleyheath.
