Braintree: Apprenticeship roadshow continues
7:00pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
More than 2,300 young people have visited Essex County Council’s Essex Apprentice ‘Discover Your Future’ road show this autumn.
The event highlights the benefits of an apprenticeship and encourages young people, who aren’t sure what to do next, to think about an apprenticeship as an option.
Essex County Council is half way through the second phase of the road show and since its relaunch in September the road show has stopped at schools in Braintree, Brentwood, Stansted Mountfitchet, Brightlingsea, Clacton, Colchester, Tiptree, Waltham Abbey, Harlow, Chelmsford, Harwich, Billericay and Basildon.
It has also exhibited at a number of careers fairs across the county including in Braintree and Basildon and soon to be in Colchester.
The road show is still on the road and will visit schools in Sible Hedingham, Chelmsford, Canvey Island, Chigwell, Wickford, Epping, Braintree, Witham, Maldon, Colchester, Loughton and Saffron Walden throughout October and November.
Essex County Councillor Kevin Bentley, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth and Infrastructure, said: “The feedback from the road shows from children, schools and parents has been extremely encouraging.
"We have seen a high level of interest from the students enthusiastic to find out more about becoming an apprentice, their options and potential careers."
