Leek College Apprenticeship Bus Takes to the Road!

Posted Date: 01/02/2012

The LEEK College Apprenticeship Bus is taking to the road again to inform teenagers at local high schools of opportunities to earn while they learn through an Apprenticeship programme.

Students at Leek High, Endon High, Moorside High School and Westwood College are climbing aboard in February and March as part of National Apprenticeship Week activities.

They will find out all about Apprenticeships which pay a minimum of £98.80 a week to school leavers who learn on the job with day release at Leek College.

Leek College Sales & Marketing Manager Mara Hargreaves explained: “What many people don’t realise is that you can start an Apprenticeship at any time.

“Some students may have been turned off in the past on hearing that they must secure their own placement in a local company but, here at Leek College, we work with hundreds of local employers to help them take on apprentices and actively match candidates to vacancies.”

“We also run pre apprenticeship courses which help young people learn important life skills including interview techniques, letter writing and how to put together a CV.”

Leek College works with hundreds of employers in the Staffordshire Moorlands and beyond. To find out more about Apprenticeships, visit www.skillsbaseapprentice.co.uk , call 01538 398866 or email admissions@leek.ac.uk.
