APPRENTICES NEEDED TO FILL LOCAL VACANCIES
Young people who have left school and want to get on the career ladder can earn while they learn on an apprenticeship scheme run by City of Wolverhampton College.
The college is currently on the hunt for over 40 apprentices to train as engineers and hairdressers, as well as work in business, customer service and marketing roles for local companies including Compton Hospice, Yoo Recruit and Ironbridge Gorge Museum.
Successful applicants will combine working for their employer with studying for a recognised qualification at the college and, depending on the company, will earn a wage of around £100-£150 per week.
Clare Gage, account manager for apprenticeships at the college, said “From this year young people are required to stay in some form of education or training until they are 18, however this doesn’t mean that they have to stay on at school.
“An apprenticeship is an ideal way for them to get on the career ladder, learn new skills and work towards a professional qualification at college whilst gaining on-the-job experience in the workplace.
“We have an excellent relationship with a wide range of local employers and have a steady stream of apprenticeship vacancies that are open to anyone aged over 16, whether they are just leaving school, already working or seeking to start a new career.”
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.
