Leaving school this year and looking for an apprenticeship? Kick-start your career!

21 March 2017

Hundreds of exciting apprenticeships are on offer at two ‘Get Sorted’ events for school leavers aged 16 to 19 in Colchester and Basildon.

Both events are free of charge and will provide a great opportunity for young people looking for a route into an apprenticeship.

Those who attend will get the chance to meet with employers and training providers, with genuine vacancies on offer. Parents and guardians are also welcome to attend.
Potential applicants should attend dressed for interview and with an up-to-date CV. 

The first of the two events, which are being organised by Essex County Council’s new Apprenticeship Promotion and Brokerage Hub, will take place on Wednesday 5 April, 10am to 2pm at Firstsite, off Queen’s Street (Old Bus Station), Colchester CO1 1JH.

The second event, in Basildon on Monday 10 April, 10am to 3pm will be held at St George’s Suite, Basildon Council Offices, St Martin’s Square, SS14 1DL.
