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:

As part of the campaign, a free Facebook live event will be held during the week with apprentices currently working in Moray.  The live event will allow young people to see apprentices at work and direct questions directly to them about their experience and Modern Apprenticeships.

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.
