Consider doing an apprenticeship

Publish date:Monday, February 25, 2019

With National Apprenticeship Week coming up, Solihull Council is encouraging people of all ages to consider doing an apprenticeship.

The annual campaign, which takes place from 4-8 March, is designed to celebrate apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

Solihull Council offers a range of apprenticeships including customer service, civil engineering, accountancy, teaching assistants and many more. They are available to anyone over the age of 16 and at a range of levels.

Councillor Ken Meeson, Cabinet Member for Children, Education & Skills, said: “We are passionate about and committed to employing apprentices. An apprenticeship not only gives people the chance to earn while they learn, it also provides an opportunity to learn important life skills.

“Many people may think that apprenticeships are just an option for school leavers, but they aren’t. They are a great route for those wanting to get back into work after having children or for people who want a change in career.

“We have a website all about apprenticeships, including details on the qualifications people can gain, what it’s like to work for the Council, as well as case studies from our existing apprentices and their managers.

“I’d really encourage people to take a look at the site and find out more about the apprenticeships we offer.”
