New drive for apprentices

Have your say

SCIENCE, engineering and manufacturing Skills Council Semta is joining forces with the National Apprenticeship Service and Sheffield and Rotherham Councils to encourage more young people to become apprentices.

The event takes place at The Source, the Meadowhall-based training centre, on Thursday, March 29 and is expected to attract more than 120 local young people.

Semta apprenticeship director Bill Twigg said: “Apprenticeships in engineering and manufacturing offer young people a fantastic opportunity to learn while they earn and enjoy a challenging and rewarding career. Employers want to take on and train bright young people so this is a great opportunity for A level students to find out more about an exciting alternative to university.”
