Must-read Punchline magazine looking to the future

Sixth form students and businesses across Gloucestershire will be interested to hear about a Punchline magazine coming out later this year.

The annual Skills Training and Apprenticeships publication will be jam-packed with articles about jobs, careers, and apprenticeship opportunities.

Punchline editor Mark Owen said if you are a business offering apprenticeships, this is the ideal showcase to promote yourself, and could also prove to be a must-read for sixth form students across Gloucestershire.

A total of 15,000 copies of the magazine will be delivered to businesses across the county with 3,000 copies going into school sixth forms and colleges, encouraging people to take apprenticeships.

Mark said: "There is the option of going to university but also there's all these fantastic apprenticeships on offer.

"Schools take students down the path to university, but with the rising cost of university, there has never been a better time to go for an apprenticeship where you actually get paid.

"There is such a diverse depth of opportunities, where you gain your knowledge on the job. There are also graduate apprenticeships available.

"There are about 60 sixth forms in Gloucestershire and we will give each school 50 magazines each for their sixth form rooms, which is quite unique. It's aimed at sixth formers to showcase the best of Gloucestershire business.

"Basically, what we are offering is for businesses to promote their companies and tell us how many apprenticeships they have available. If you want to advertise your position, we've got a special rate."

The magazine is due to come out in early December, when a lot of companies start looking for their apprentices and many sixth formers start thinking about their future.
