Young people from across Hyndburn are being urged to visit the Town Hall to check out a range of apprentice and training opportunities.
The Hyndburn Apprenticeship event is aimed at people aged 16 to 24 and attendees will be able to speak to employers and training providers, seek expert advice and get one-to-one support in applying for vacancies.
It was due to be held on Thursday, January 16 from 4pm.
Interviews will also be possible with potential employers on the day and candidates will also have the chance to get hands on and try out a range of
skills and trades.
Daniel Cardwell, 23, attended an earlier Hyndburn Apprentice event last June and was offered a pest control apprenticeship with Hyndburn council as a result.
He said: “I’m really enjoying the apprenticeship with the council’s pest control team.
“I would recommend anyone thinking about an apprenticeship to go along to the event.”
Council leader Miles Parkinson said the previous event in the summer was “a great success”. He added: “An apprentice learns on the job, and is able to gain qualifications by learning new skills, whilst earning money at the same time.
“Daniel is a great example of how these events help young people to get real apprenticeships.” To get involved, or to find out more, call Ben Caulfield on 01254 388111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
