National Apprenticeship Week 2016 - preview

11 March 2016     JTL

JTL will be taking part in a number of activities over the next few days, tying in with this year's National Apprenticeship Week, starting on Monday 14 March 2016.

We will be attending a number of events, and have organised some of our own, as we look to help spread the word about apprenticeships. We will be looking to help as many young people as possible find out more about work-based learning, and how they could use an apprenticeship to kick off their career. We'll also be speaking to employers, helping them find out more about how they can take on an apprentice, and how doing so can add real value to their business.

For anyone based in the Birmingham area, Wednesday sees us hosting a "Taster Day" at our National Centre of Excellence in the city. If you come along, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy practical taster sessions in our state-of-the-art electrical and plumbing workshops, and we'll even be interviewing candidates on the day, offering places on our courses there and then to those who are successful.

On Tuesday evening, along with the ECA, JTL are hosting a go-karting event in memory of former JTL apprentice and Ambassador Phoebe Stockford, who passed away last year. There are still spaces for organisations who may wish to enter a team into the endurance race. Find out more about how you can take part here

Throughout the week, we'll be attending various careers events across England and Wales, where young people and their parents can come along to find out more about apprenticeships, and to discuss what a JTL apprenticeship might entail and include. Look out for news about these on our social media pages.
