What are my career opportunities?
Dan Shelley, Vice Principal for Enterprise, Employment and Skills, said, ‘Our Traineeship scheme provides employers with an excellent opportunity to support young people gain skills by offering work placements that could also lead to them becoming their next employee. They are also a great way for young people to get the skills and experience they need to secure an apprenticeship, which will lead to employment and a career in the future. We really urge any employers or students who are interested to get in touch.’
