Scottish Apprenticeship Week…

The seventh annual Scottish Apprenticeship Week runs from 6th  March to 10th  March – a nationwide celebration aimed at encouraging more employers to take on apprentices and to highlight the range of apprenticeships available in Moray and beyond.  The following link – Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2017 – provides further information.  Three events for young people parents and carers to meet apprentices, employers and training providers will soon take place:

The following events are happening in Moray:

The event can be accessed by anyone who is thinking about an apprenticeship or looking for more information as long as they have access to a Facebook account.  The event will provide opportunities for young people, parents and carers to find out more about apprenticeships and the great career opportunities work based learning can offer.
