Following the success of National Apprenticeship Week, Cheshire College – South & West hosted an Apprenticeship Open Evening at its Crewe and Ellesmere Port Campuses on Thursday 16th February.
The event was organised to highlight the benefits of becoming an Apprentice, and to provide information about Apprenticeships to members of the public.
Attendees at the two Campuses spoke to visiting employers including the leading global automaker Stellantis and Bakkavor, the international food manufacturing company. The College’s academic staff were also present to share details about the various Apprenticeship programmes.
Cheshire College has over 1,000 Apprentices, works with over 500 local, national and international employers and delivers Apprenticeships across a wide range of sectors including, Health, Public Services & Care, Engineering & Manufacturing, Construction & Building Services, Information & Communications Technology, Retail & Commercial Enterprise, Education & Training and Business, Administration & Law.
Karen Roberts, Assistant Principal – Apprenticeships and Employer said: “Many of our current students decided to study here after attending one of our Open Evenings, and we’re eager to extend this opportunity to aspiring apprentices.
We had a diverse cohort of employers at the event, who are all passionate about Apprenticeships. With our strong corporate partnerships and exciting learning programmes, there’s never been a better time to start an Apprenticeship at Cheshire College.”
