The Runshaw College Careers Team were pleased to host the annual Advanced, Higher and Degree Apprenticeship event which took place on Wednesday 9th November.
The evening comprised of three presentations focussing on the apprenticeship option. They took place in the Amanda Roocroft Theatre and were delivered by Cath Robinson (Project Manager for Apprenticeships – Lancashire Forum). Each presentation was extremely well attended (450 people in total) and the feedback received was extremely positive.
In addition, a wide range of employers attended the event to promote the various apprenticeship opportunities they offer. Each organisation had a stand and provided the opportunity for students and their parents/carers to research into all the options available. The companies who attended included:
- Rolls Royce BAE
- Lancashire Constabulary
- Leyland Trucks
- James Hall (Spar)
Three universities who deliver the degree aspect of the apprenticeships also attended – Manchester Metropolitan University, University of Central Lancashire and the University of Law. UCLan were extremely keen to promote their new apprenticeship matching service, whilst MMU and the University of Law promoted the current vacancies they have with a range of high quality employers.
The Runshaw College Careers Team and the Apprenticeship Team were also on hand to answer any queries. The evening was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone involved – it was a great Runshaw team effort!
