Last year 11,340 Essex residents embarked on an apprenticeship.
An apprenticeship is a nationally recognised training programme that is open to people aged 16 and over.
Apprenticeships combine work with study (usually one day a week) where you will work towards relevant professional qualifications which could be a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) or, in some cases, up to Degree level.
Employers appreciate the benefits of apprenticeships and more and more are seeking to recruit apprentices, offering the opportunity to earn while you learn.
Apprenticeship events are a great way for your meet a range of prospective employers as well as to learn more about your chosen career.
