Local employers and young apprentices met up at Orangebox young people’s centre, Halifax, to provide information and advice on careers to Calderdale youngsters.
Organised by Working Wonders, the event saw representatives from Working Wonders, Calderdale College, Calderdale Training, C&K Careers, Grow Your Future, apprenticeship provider 3aaa, CI Adventures, the outdoor activity provider, and
Project Challenge, a training provider, manning stands and talking to young people.
“It was our first real event in Calderdale, so it was great to meet some eager young potential apprentices,” said Matthew Dickinson, of Leeds-based 3aaa. “The young people I met were very switched on, engaged and all looked very promising, so it was a good event. We’ll look forward to attending more events around the area as well as getting into schools to spread the positive message about apprenticeships.”
