Lots on offer at apprenticeship fair

Published: 17 January 2020


Come along to the fifth annual Crawley Apprenticeship and Traineeship Fair on Wednesday 5 February during National Apprenticeship Week and find out how you can get paid to learn.

Whether you are looking for an apprenticeship, traineeship or just need some guidance about getting into a profession, this event is suitable for everyone who wants to speak to a wide range of local employers.

Crawley Borough Council, in partnership with West Sussex County Council, is holding the Crawley Apprenticeship and Traineeship Fair generously hosted by Crawley College. The fair is aimed at motivating and inspiring people to take their first step into a successful career through local apprenticeship and training opportunities.

This is a great local event showcasing the many opportunities Crawley has to offer. I would advise anyone looking for a new experience or to gain valuable qualifications to come along for free and discover what you could achieve.

As an apprentice, I would encourage people to find out more about apprenticeships and discover what alternative pathways there are to university and create a stepping stone into your career in a hands-on way. Whilst being an apprentice, I have already gained so much experience, learnt new skills, met lots of people and had the opportunity to work in a professional environment, at the same time as getting qualified and paid.

Apprenticeships are open to anyone over the age of 16 who is looking to gain job-specific skills and qualifications while also earning a wage. This is a great opportunity to speak to employers and find out about the many opportunities available.

The event will be held at Crawley College, College Road, Crawley RH10 1NR on Wednesday 5 February from 4.30-7pm.

We look forward to welcoming students, parents, carers and job seekers to our annual event.
