Saturday 9 March, 10am to 2pm
National Apprenticeship week, from 4 – 8 March 2019, is a celebration of all that is good about apprenticeships, with events marking the significant role of apprentices in today’s working environment. At the end of the week, Saturday 9 March, Horsham District Council and West Sussex County council will once again hold an apprenticeship fair.
The fair, held at the Drill Hall in Horsham, will run between 10am and 2pm and will see more than 40 apprentice employers and training providers, from a wide variety of sectors, present their opportunities.
The event is free and anyone is welcome to attend. It is one major career route for young people starting out on a career, but also older, more experienced people are now starting to retrain using apprenticeship courses.
This year’s Apprenticeship and Traineeship Fair follows on from last year’s very successful first event, with more than 500 opportunities on offer and in excess of 1000 visitors attending.
There will also be two Q&A sessions at 11am and 12.30pm, with a panel of past and present apprentices, as well as employers and training providers fielding questions from the audience.
Once again, a pop up café, provided by Beeches Buffet, will cater for the hungry and thirsty, with refreshments, tasty cakes and lunchtime snacks.
