Apprenticeship Open Evening: Wednesday 18 March 

As a GC Student, you can get exclusive access to our Apprenticeship Open Evening.

We’re starting the event earlier to make it easier for you to pop in before you head home for the day or between lessons. 

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.

Apply by 31 March 2020

We recommend that you apply by 31 March 2020 to secure your first choice of course.
