Ready? Apprenticeship? GO! 

Young people aged 16 and 17 from Carlisle are invited to an Apprenticeship event at the Inspira Centre on Lowther Street on Tuesday 5th of March.

Aimed at those who are looking to secure an apprenticeship as their next step after GCSEs, the interactive event is designed to give young people professional feedback on their CVs, get application hints, interview tips and find out about ways to evidence they have the soft skills employers are looking for. 

Louise Latta, Skills and Development Advisor with Inspira, said, “We want to provide practical advice to young people to help them achieve their goal. Competition for apprenticeships can be high and we want to make sure they make their application stand out.”

With two sessions, one at 4pm and one at 5.30pm, interested students can book a time slot and get the help they need.

The 12th National Apprenticeship Week (NAW 2019) will run from 4th March to 8th March 2019. The week celebrates the success of apprenticeships whilst encouraging even more people to chose apprenticeships as a pathway to a great career. 

Susan Watkins, Area Operations Manager North, said, “Employers place great importance on behaviours and attitudes when recruiting apprentices. They can train people to do the job but the applicant needs to demonstrate how their personal development has prepared them for the workplace. Often young people have developed skills transferable to the workplace without even realising it. This is what we want to highlight in helping them with their applications and what better time to do it than National Apprenticeship Week 2019."
