Young people’s career opportunities have been disproportionally affected by the pandemic, with the number of young people not in employment, education or training (NEET) rising to the highest quarterly figure in a decade.
To help tackle this issue, we are hosting Refresh Your Future, a virtual career and training event taking place between 7-11th June to help you get your foot on the career ladder and move up.
Our weeklong online event will highlight how apprenticeships not only provide a viable route into employment, with the chance to earn while you learn, but also offer the chance for real career progression too. During the event, there will be live webinars, interactive Q&As with course leaders, an overview of our CPD courses, a chance to talk to employers and a recruitment drive covering vacancies at a range of businesses who work with us.
We’ll also be providing sector-specific advice on course content and career pathways for apprenticeships in early years, adult care, hospitality and business management.
For anyone looking to learn more about apprenticeships in general, there will be sessions such as ‘A day in the life of an apprentice’, and ‘From application to placement’ which outlines the process from enquiry to your first day as an apprentice.
Our managing director, Clare Phizacklea, said: “The pandemic has affected the jobs of so many young people. However, apprenticeships are a vital way of ensuring people have the opportunity to start their career and reach their full potential. The qualifications and courses we offer allow learners to boost their own skillset and move forward with their career.”
