Apprenticeship Promotion and Brokerage Hub
ESSEX County Council has launched an Apprenticeship Promotion and Brokerage Hub that:
- promotes apprenticeships in schools;
- encourages young people to consider the apprenticeship route;
- works with employers to develop more high quality apprenticeship opportunities.
Trained careers advisors are on hand to help with CV writing, interview preparation and next steps advice. They can also match students to apprenticeship vacancies locally and nationally.
PROCAT feeds into the apprenticeship vacancy bulletin that the Hub shares across Essex County Council teams, schools and colleges. Working in partnership with our employers we highlight any apprenticeship vacancies that are available in engineering and construction. The PROCareer team also promotes the Hub and its activities when working with schools and young people to ensure that they access the additional support that is available to them.
In the coming year we are aiming to work with the Hub to host an evening for sixth formers interested in degree apprenticeship within engineering which will enable them to meet employers – so watch this space!
