Don't miss Gloucestershire's biggest engineering apprenticeship recruitment event

If you are considering a career in engineering then Gloucestershire Engineering Training's (GET) apprenticeship recruitment event is not to be missed.

The event will put you in front of current and recent apprentices, company bosses, trainers, opportunities, and reveal everything from entry-level demands to potential career paths around the world.

The recruitment evening, highlighting post GCSE and A-Level opportunities within the engineering sector, is free to attend.

It is being held at Barnwood Point, Gloucester on Tuesday 21 January between 4.30 and 7.30pm.

The training provider has been providing work-based learning in engineering for over 40 years, including training in mechanical, electrical, maintenance, welding and fabrication skills.

GET says that their courses are 'fully tailored to suit modern industry requirements', meaning that learners are prepared for the workplace from the minute they finish their training.

Companies exhibiting at the event are all county-based and include: Renishaw, Ontic, Textron, Spirax Sarco, Future Advanced, LRS (Lucozade Ribena Suntory), Safran Landing System Services, Safran Landing Systems, Trelleborg, Majorlift, Delphi Technologies, G-TEM, LB Bentley, Kohler Mira and the University of Gloucestershire.

Linsey Temple, chief executive at GET said: "Year on year we are finding more young people coming through the doors to find out what engineering is about and looking at the career options available in engineering and manufacturing.

"We have seen a rise in apprentices, not just young people applying but in terms of businesses taking on apprentices."

This invitation is aimed at current year 11-13 students, with a view to starting on an apprenticeship in 2020.

There is no need to make an appointment, just turn up.
