National Apprenticeship Week 6th -10th March 2017: Growing the Talent of Dorset’s Young People Kingston Maurward College
During next week’s National Apprenticeship Week Kingston Maurward College would like to encourage people to consider apprenticeships and help businesses grow their own skilled and qualified workforce.
New students will be able to discuss apprenticeship possibilities in industry sectors including Agriculture, Animal Conservation & Welfare, Business Administration, Construction, Countryside Management, Equine, Horticulture, Hospitality, Public Services, Fire and Rescue, Sport and Outdoor Education, Retail, Welding, and many more.
Industry experts will be on hand including The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) who will be talking to the construction students about the industry qualifications available; and East Dorset District Council will be talking about their horticultural apprenticeship vacancies.
The National Farmers Union (NFU) will be talking about the wide job options available on the land, besides being a farmer. Louise Stratton of the Dorset NFU said: “We are pleased to support Kingston Maurward with this initiative as our industry has many jobs allied to farming that require a great grounding in agricultural fundamentals that can be learnt with a Kingston Maurward apprenticeship. There are so many diverse careers in the agricultural sector.”
Kingston Maurward College would like to invite both new students and potential apprenticeship employers to the Open Morning on Sunday 19th March 2017 10am-12pm. Students can speak to course experts and employers will be welcome to ask advice on the new apprenticeship scheme and how the funding will work for them.
