Apprenticeships aren’t just for school and college leavers. Anyone over the age of 16 can apply.

They give you the opportunity to earn while you learn and gain a nationally recognised qualification.

The Hove Town Hall event is a chance to find out what it’s like to be an apprentice and how it can benefit you.

You'll be able to speak to a number of employers who offer apprenticeships as well as training providers.

Mairna Marzoug is an apprentice in the council’s transport team. She said: “Getting the experience while getting a qualification and earning money has really given me a good foundation.

“At only 19 I’ve still got so much experience on my CV that I wouldn’t have had if I’d just gone to college.”

The chair of the council’s children, young people and skills committee, Councillor Dan Chapman, said: “Employers quite often offer permanent jobs to people who have impressed them during their apprenticeships.

“So whether you want a great introduction to the world of work or a career change, an apprenticeship could be just what you’re looking for.”

If you can’t make the event on 20 June, don’t panic! The council’s apprenticeship team is also holding a second information event at the Brighton Centre On Tuesday 10 July from 4.30pm to 7.30pm.
