Gloucestershire’s biggest engineering apprenticeship recruitment event

Are you, or is someone you know interested in a career in engineering?

Gloucestershire Engineering Training (GET) are hosting an event to provide students, parents and teachers the opportunity to explore the wide range of engineering apprenticeships available within the county.

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 Monday, January 21 between 4.30 and 7.30pm.

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

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

The event offers the chance to talk to current apprentices about their views and experiences, representatives from leading companies to discuss their current vacancies as well as business services staff to explain the application and recruitment process.

GET's chief executive Linsey Temple 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 2019.

There is no need to make an appointment, just turn up. For more information visit http://get-trained.org/, or call 01425 423461.
