Hundreds of young people and businesses across Doncaster have been finding out about opportunities to get paid to learn this week.
Business Doncaster, a programme delivered by Doncaster Council hosted an Apprenticeship Fair as part of this year’s National Apprenticeship Week.
The event was held this week at Doncaster Mansion House and provided the opportunity for attendees to meet training providers, local businesses and young apprentices and learn more about the employment opportunities and training courses available throughout the borough.
Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones said: ‘It is great to see the investment in training which is taking place here and I hope that young people will take up the opportunity of apprenticeships.’
‘The event was very well attended and I hope even more employers will come forward to offer apprenticeships to the overall benefit of the local economy. Young people in Doncaster are our future workforce and I am committed to ensure we attract and retain young talent within the town.’
A variety of hands-on activities gave visitors a flavour of what an apprenticeship entails and what it’s like to work in a selection of different trades including hairdressing, engineering, hospitality and childcare.
Employers can access government financial incentives such as the £1500 AGE Grant and the newly launched £500 Business Bonus.
