APPRENTICES NEEDED TO FILL LOCAL VACANCIES
Young people who are struggling to find a job have the chance to combine earning and learning, thanks to City of Wolverhampton College.
The college has a range of apprenticeship vacancies available now across the city and beyond – from those in customer service and accountancy to engineering, hospitality and hairdressing.
Apprentices will not only gain a qualification that will help them in their future careers, but will earn a weekly wage and gain valuable work experience.
Apprenticeships just in include an apprentice chef position at Wolverhampton Wanderers and a Business Admin vacancy at Thomas Harvey Estate Agents.
Sixteen-year-old Elliot Zammit, who is a catering apprentice in a pub kitchen said: “I’m learning something new every day and feel as though I’ve progressed a lot since I started my apprenticeship. I’ve still got a long way to go but I’m starting to think of myself as a chef now rather than just a student.”
For young people not quite ready for an Apprenticeship the college offers a 6 week work experience programme called a Traineeship, which focuses on the skills and experience employers want.
City of Wolverhampton College runs the largest apprenticeship programme in the region and currently supports around 800 apprentices working for employers across the Black Country and beyond.
