As part of National Apprenticeship Week 2021, Gloucestershire College’s Business Hub team invites you to virtually join them on Thursday 11 February from 2-3pm to discover apprenticeships and the incredible impact they are having within organisations across the county.

Open to all, this is your chance to find out everything you need to know about apprenticeships. Employers, managers, HR partners, recruitment teams and all employees who are looking to advance their career and upskill can join Gloucestershire College’s team to find out more about the apprenticeship scheme.

Hosted by Julie Tegg, Director of Apprenticeships and Employer Training, and Myra Billinghurst, Business Development Manager at Gloucestershire College, attendees will be able to get their questions answered by the College’s apprenticeship experts.

The virtual event will cover:
