Explore award-winning apprenticeships across 17 industries with over 1,000 of Gloucestershire’s best businesses delivering education that pays.

Gloucester Campus

Wednesday 20 March 2019
5.30pm – 8.00pm


Fast Track your Career

This March our Gloucester Campus will be hosting employers from a wide range of industries across the county looking to recruit apprentices.

In six industry zones you can explore apprenticeships and degree level apprenticeships by speaking directly to the employers who’ll deliver them. You can talk to them about the opportunities on offer, what the job will involve and the pay you can expect to receive, as well as making a great first-impression to increase your chances of getting an interview should you go on to apply.

You can even apply for live apprenticeship vacancies on the night.

Be introduced to the world of apprenticeships by our very own apprenticeship team, our experts will inform you about the types of apprenticeships available, the industries you could work in and the exciting career paths they can lead on to.

Meet our current apprentices who will share their experiences of everyday apprentice life – you’ll discover what kind of projects they have been working on and why they decided an apprenticeship was right for them.

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a great way to gain a new qualification while getting experience and earning money.

Apprenticeships today aren’t just for trade jobs like plumbing and carpentry, although we offer apprenticeships for those too. You can achieve a certificate, diploma, and even a degree level qualification, making them a good alternative to university and full-time study.

You’ll spend most of your time with an employer, and depending on the apprenticeship, you’ll spend some time at college to complete your learning.

Why do an apprenticeship?

Young people who build links with organisations and professionals in the sectors that they are interested in can build a more effective network – offering a better chance of getting a recommendation that they may need to get their foot on the employment ladder.

In fact, 9 out of 10 Gloucestershire College apprentices stay with their employer after they’ve completed an apprenticeship and nearly all* of them were given promotions, pay rises, benefit packages or progressed onto a higher level of qualification.
