The Bassett Apprenticeship Fair will offer businesses and potential apprentices a chance to find out about the realities of this kind of training.
Taking place at Manor House Enterprise Centre, Royal Wootton Bassett on Wednesday 4th October, the fair will feature presentations from people who have been through the system, as well as organisations who can provide information and support.
The aim of the day, which runs from 10am to 2pm, is to bring people together to learn from each other and get answers to practical questions: What kind of apprenticeships are out there? What do they cost? How can we get started?
Organised by Wiltshire Council and supported by Swindon Borough Council as well as colleges, academies and businesses, the apprenticeship fair is the first of its kind to encourage local people to talk and ask questions in a relaxed and open setting.
“This is a great opportunity to find out how apprenticeships can help – both for businesses looking to grow, and for people who want to learn and develop new skills” said co-organiser Jolyon Rose, who works for Wiltshire Council’s TEN, The Enterprise Network.
“There are so many possibilities – and age is no barrier either” he added.
The event is taking place at Manor House Enterprise Centre, one of four TEN enterprise centres around Wiltshire that offer flexible work space as well as meeting rooms, hot desks and virtual offices.
Attendance is free but online registration is required due to space limitations.
