Blaze a trail at the Langley College Apprenticeship Fair

Langley College is once again supporting National Apprenticeship Week. The region’s largest provider of the gold-standard in work-based learning is to hold an Apprenticeship Fair on Thursday 7 March, 10am to 3pm. Over 25 employers are set to attend, all of which are actively looking to recruit students for a number of exciting apprenticeship opportunities.

Now in its 12th year, the theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2019 is ‘Blaze a trail’ with Kate Webb, Group Principal and Chief Executive Officer commenting: “We have a range of employers, across a wide variety of sectors, who have apprenticeship vacancies they are ready to fill. Our recruitment event/fair is a great opportunity for anyone keen to explore their options, talk to employers and find out about the extensive support we provide to both apprentices and employers. You can blaze your own trail by becoming an apprentice – these are real jobs with a real salary which is paid as you gain hands-on experience and while learning the technical know-how here at college.”

It’s not just apprentices who see themselves as the winners. Many employers who have an established apprenticeship programme reported that productivity in their workplace had improved by 76% while 75% reported that apprenticeships improved the quality of their product or service.

Apprentices are certainly helping Lloyd Turner fire up his business, Marlow Garage. Commenting on the value they add he said: “Apprentices are a great way to bring new talent into my business. I originally studied an apprenticeship through the Colleges years ago and now employ apprentices for my own business. The College produces a good pedigree of apprentices, who are trained on all the latest equipment.”

As well as having all the industry contacts the Apprenticeship team at the College also bring over 40 years of experience in delivering high quality training schemes. They offer a free apprentice matching service, specialist funding expertise, dedicated account managers and will tailor training to meet individual company needs.

Salve Caruso, Director Classico Marble Ltd, explains further: “Apprenticeships can be a really good way forward to recruit staff. The College has found us good keen young people who have wanted to learn and they have achieved a great level of competency with us. We would certainly recommend apprenticeships.”

There’s never been a better time to start an apprenticeship with training schemes available in 350 job roles, covering more than 170 industries. There are three levels of apprenticeship available - Intermediate – equivalent to five GCSEs, grade 9-4 (A*-C), Advanced – equivalent to two A-levels and Higher which can lead to a foundation degree.

Find out more by coming along to Langley College’s Apprenticeship Fair on Thursday 7 March, 10am to 3pm.
