Training agency promotes career opportunities

A Midlands apprenticeship training agency has helped to organise a major event in Birmingham to promote career opportunities to school leavers.

The Apprenticeship Works is an event partner at the Inspire My Future day which will take place from 9.30am to 4pm on Friday October 1 at Millennium Point, in Birmingham city centre.

The event has been designed for school leavers to inspire the next generation with a choice of apprenticeships, traineeships and retraining opportunities. More than 10,000 people are expected to attend, with visitors ranging from schools, sixth forms and colleges to individual young people, parents, families and employers.

Mike Smith, business development officer  at The Apprenticeship Works, which is based in West Bromwich, said: “This event will have a host of employers and training providers on hand to talk to people face-to-face about apprenticeship and careers choices across in the Midlands.

“This sort of quality advice, guidance and support are vital to ensure young people, school-leavers and students are inspired by the prospect of an apprenticeship as well as other career options. We are an apprenticeship training agency that works closely with local employers across the West Midlands and we have a range of opportunities for 16 to 24 year olds looking to develop a career.”

The Apprenticeship Works is a partner of the BCTG group of companies, including BCTG Skills, Performance Through People and Eurosource, and they will all be present at the Inspire My Future event to promote the group’s full range of services.

Mr Smith added: “This essentially means that we are well-positioned to offer suitable options for both young people and adults, including training and apprenticeships in construction, early years, health and social care, accounting, learning and development, management and dental nursing.

“Other areas where we offer apprenticeships include business administration, customer service, warehousing, engineering, manufacturing and ICT.”

The Apprenticeship Works stand at the event will host interactive activities for visitors, with a range of competitions and prizes. There will also be a BCTG conference meeting at 1.30pm to explain the range of training opportunities available.

The event is free of charge to anyone who wants to attend, although booking is essential. For more details, visit: www.nationalapprenticeshipevents.co.uk.
