Find out what a manufacturing apprenticeship could do for you.
Young people, parents and teachers are being urged to find out about the benefits of modern-day manufacturing apprenticeships at a free open day on Saturday 28th February.
EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, is opening the doors of its multi-million pound Technology Training Centre in Nexus Way, Aston, Birmingham so that people can find out more about the types of training on offer, the range of qualifications and the potential career opportunities from becoming an apprentice.
They will be able to see for themselves the cutting-edge equipment and techniques used in manufacturing today. The open day involves a tour of the facilities, taster sessions and Q&A sessions with current apprentices, trainers and employers looking to recruit apprentices.
Attendees will find out how manufacturing companies are looking for skilled or highly-skilled workers, which means that apprentices can look forward to an interesting and rewarding long-term career in industry.
For those who don’t wish to go to university, a manufacturing apprenticeship offers a viable and respected route into a well-paid career. But, at the same time, it can also lead to a university degree for those who want to get this qualification under their belt.
Peter Winebloom, Technical Training Director at EEF, says: “This open day is a great, ‘no strings attached’ way of finding out more about modern-day manufacturing apprenticeships. Whether you are thinking of becoming an apprentice yourself, know a young person who you think it might suit or simply want to update your own knowledge, we look forward to opening our doors and telling you more.
“Manufacturers are crying out for skilled staff so, in partnership with employers, we offer a wealth of training and career pathways for the young women and men we train here at our centre. We hope to open eyes to these opportunities and help many more to realise their future ambitions.”
The open day is free to attend and runs from 10am to 12.30pm on Saturday 28th February at EEF Technology Training Centre, Unit 3, Nexus Point, Gavin Way, Birmingham B6 7AF.
