A careers event will be held at Sandwell Council House in Oldbury on Tuesday 4 February, showcasing the wide range of jobs and apprenticeships available in Sandwell.
The event marks National Apprenticeship Week, which runs from Monday 3 to Friday 7 February, and will have a special focus on apprenticeships.
Attendees will be able to meet current apprentices and find out what support is available to help them get a job or apprenticeship. Councillor Danny Millard, cabinet member for skills and employment said:
"Apprenticeships are a fantastic way of getting into a new career. Some people think apprenticeships are only for young people. In fact, apprenticeships are open to anyone, from any age group and background.
"I want as many people as possible to attend the event, so sign up now at the employment events webpage.”
Sandwell Council employs apprentices of all ages and in wide range of careers, who are studying towards a wide range of qualifications including business administration, hospitality, activity instructor, horticulture and many more.
They also support local businesses to employee apprentices and find the right candidates.
