South West College is taking part in the annual Northern Ireland (NI) Apprenticeship Week 2024, a week-long celebration led by the Department for the Economy, which aims to highlight the crucial role of apprenticeships in Northern Ireland by bringing together apprentices, employers and education providers.
NI Apprenticeship week, which will take place from February 5 to 9 2024, will feature a series of virtual events and information sessions across the province which showcase how apprenticeships can transform the future of apprentices and businesses.
Throughout Friday 9 February from 9 to 6pm, the College will be hosting an ‘All About Apprenticeships’ event, an opportunity for parents or guardians of young people in Year 12, 13 and 14 who are considering an apprenticeship programme, to talk directly to a member of the College team about what an apprenticeship involves, the benefits, career paths, progression, entry requirements and study format.
This unique event will provide the opportunity for parents, guardians and young people to have a personal video or voice call appointment with a member of the apprenticeship team at South West College. Our team will provide helpful and friendly guidance for anyone about to embark on an apprenticeship as their career path.
Prospective apprentices will have the opportunity to learn more about ‘Earn while you Learn’ and Higher-Level Apprenticeships at South West College in a wide range of sectors including accountancy, hairdressing, construction, engineering, plumbing, computing and lots more.
