Celebrating apprentices

A SERIES of events will be staged by Northumberland College to mark National Apprenticeship Week.

Employers will celebrate the value of apprenticeships at an awards dinner at the college’s Kirkley Hall campus near Ponteland.

And on Tuesday, there will be an open event at the Ashington campus for both employers and people interested in becoming an apprentice. Staff will offer advice and information about programmes from 4.30pm to 7pm.

In addition, the college’s mobile learning centre will visit various businesses throughout the week to discuss their training needs.

National Apprenticeship Week runs from Monday, February 7 to Friday, February 11. For more information about Northumberland College schemes visit www.northumberland.ac.uk or call 01670 841268.
