Event description

Description

On Wednesday 28 March our Gloucester Campus will be hosting employers from a wide range of industries across the county looking to recruit apprentices. We have two entry times available on the evening at 5.30 and 6.30pm - please select the one that is best for you.

* Only prospective apprentices need to register for the event - guests are welcome to attend, but do not need to register

Explore award-winning apprenticeships across 17 industries with hundreds of Gloucestershire's best businesses delivering education that pays.

In five industry zones, you can explore apprenticeships and degree level apprenticeships by speaking directly to the employers who will 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.

Be introduced to the world of apprenticeships by our very own apprenticeships 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.

The apprenticeship zones:

  • Construction and Motor Vehicle
  • Engineering
  • Health, Social Care and Early Years
  • Catering and Hospitality
  • Professional Services and Creative Industries

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


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Can I apply at the Apprenticeship Open Evening?
Yes! You can either apply for a live vacancy, or if you're not sure what apprenticeship you want to do yet, we'll have Application Hubs set up where you can speak to our Application team Student Services Team will be on hand to help with any queries you may have during the application process.

What apprenticeship levels are available?
There are a few types of apprenticeship on offer than can give you a qualification all the way up to degree level. You can study Intermediate and Advanced Apprenticeships, which are Level 2 and 3 equivalent respectively. Higher apprenticeships range from Level 4, equivalent to a Higher National Certificate (HNC), to Level 6, equivalent to a Bachelor's degree and, similar to intermediate and advanced apprenticeships, combine on-the-job training while studying towards a degree-level qualification. Higher apprentices can see increased earning of around £150,000 over their lifetime.

Am I able to park at the College?
Parking is free at the Gloucester Campus but spaces are limited. If the campus car park is full, the Gloucester Docks car park is free to park after 6pm and Gloucester Quays car park is just £2 for two hours after 6pm. Both car parks are just a 5 minute walk away from the College. Please check their websites before you travel in case there have been any changes to the tarriff.

I'm a mature student, can I still come?
Absolutely. Apprenticeships are open to anyone over the age of 16 who meets the entry requirements. Entry requirements vary depending on the level of the apprenticeship.

Will I be able to talk to someone about apprenticeships and/or get career advice?
Gloucestershire College has a dedicated Advice Team who can give you free, impartial and confidential advice on choosing a career path and planning your studies to get there. The team will be available to talk through the full range of options available to you.

How long is the event?
Feel free to arrive any time between 5.30pm and 7.30pm. We have two slots available to book between 5.30 - 6.30pm and 6.30 - 7.30pm. The last talk available from the apprenticeship team to explain apprenticeships i at 6.15pm, so we suggest you book our early slot if you would like to attend any talks.

I'm thinking about doing a full-time course, shoud I still come?
Definitely. When you're exploring your education options it's important to think about what further qualifications and careers paths that can lead onto. We have apprenticeships on offer all the way up to degree level, so even if you think you're not ready for an apprenticeship right now, you might want to consider an apprenticeship for a later, higher level study, as it can be a great way to get into a good company and onto the career ladder. We'll have a GC Advice Team at the event who can talk through long-term progression and career paths with you.
