TRAFFORD Connexions Service is to hold its annual apprenticeship fair on Thursday, February 13.

The 'no appointment necessary' event, which is being held at Sale Waterside Arts Centre between 2pm and 7pm, is open to all school, college and sixth form leavers, their parents and carers.

Attendees will be able to speak directly to careers advisers and employers who can positively influence their future career choices and aspirations.

This aims to increase confidence, as well as opening up apprenticeship opportunities to them which they can apply or register for on the day.

With all students now expected to remain in education or learning for a further year, many see apprenticeships as their best way of achieving this.

Anyone wanting further information about this latest apprenticeship fair can contact Andrew Ashford or Andy Zilkha at Trafford Connexions on 0161 911 8600.
