Tuesday, 7 October 2014 from 12:00 to 14:30 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Community Foundation for Calderdale in partnership with Calderdale College ,Working Wonders ltd & Business for Calderdale present 'You're Hired' The Apprentice Event, a unique event for employers and potential apprentices.
The event will be hosted at Calderdale College who were recently described
by Ofsted as achieving 'outstanding outcomes for apprenticeships', by BBC Look North's presenter Clare Frisby, who is herself passionate about apprenticeships for young people.
Ensuring the correct skills are in place, both within our existing and future work force is vital to the economy of the region. One of the cornerstones of this is Apprenticeships. Apprentices help businesses cut costs, fill skills
gaps and increase retention rates. However, many employers shy away from the scheme due to popular misconceptions and myths, or simply a lack of information.
If you're an employer who is thinking about, or has existing apprentices in your workforce, you're invited to join us on October 7th.
Guest speakers include:
Lord Sugar’s BBC Junior Apprentice winner 2012 Ashleigh Porter-Exley
Apprentices who were funded by Community Foundation for Calderdale as part of the highly successful Mayoral campaign Cycle for Work.
A business panel made up of local employers who have first hand experience of hiring apprentices. Click here to see the panel.
