The College is hosting a double-header of online events highlighting programmes which will appeal to school leavers, employers and adult learners.

The June sessions include a Business Apprenticeship event for Year 11 learners and a Professional Qualifications information seminar to promote flexible courses which can help people develop new skills for the workplace.

School leavers can register for the online Business & Professional apprenticeship event on Friday 11 June (11am)– hosted by the College’s employer engagement team and supported by employer Liz Box from Coventry-based telecoms provider Genesis Technical Systems UK.

The event will give school leavers the opportunity to find out more about the business programme and the benefits of apprenticeships which include earning and learning at the same time, gaining valuable, hands-on workplace experience and achieving a highly-regarded qualification.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and support and guidance will be available for those who want to apply for the apprenticeship and secure their next steps after leaving school.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday 15 June (5-7pm) College Business tutor Donna Mason will host the Professional Qualifications event for those who want to develop new skills for the workplace or support their own personal development.

The College offers a range of professional qualifications in Accounting & Finance, Business Management & HR and Education & Training which can open up new career pathways.

Rob Jones, the College’s Sector Engagement Officer Business Development, is co-ordinating the apprenticeship event.

Rob said: “Now is a really important time for school leavers as they commit to their next steps and secure their future from September onwards.

“For those who are still undecided about what to do next when they leave school next month, it’s really important that they weigh up their different options.

“This virtual event is an opportunity for school leavers considering an apprenticeship as an alternative to full-time study programmes to find out more about what this apprenticeship is about and how it can help them take a huge first step on the employment ladder.

“We’re very grateful to Liz Box and Genesis apprentice Owen Collings for supporting the session and giving Year 11 learners an insight into the programme from both the apprentice’s and employer’s perspective.”

The College launched a new Professional Qualifications guide in April which provides information about all the professional accredited qualifications it offers.

Donna Mason said: “Our professional qualifications cover a variety of sectors and are taught by staff who have vast experience in education and industry.

‘This online event is an opportunity for people to find out more about the programmes and how a professional qualification can benefit them both personally and professionally.

“Anyone is welcome to join the session, which is likely to be of particular interest to adult learners, employers and employees, and ask any questions they have.”
