Training provider, Seetec, will host pre-apprenticeship workshops this June in a bid to help a new generation of learners get on the career ladder.

As school leavers explore their options as the end of term nears, education specialist, Seetec, is providing a one-stop shop of knowledge and a stepping stone to help young people kick-start their careers.

To coincide with National Employability day on Friday 29th June, the training provider is hosting an event in Manchester to give 16-24 year olds all the information they need on starting an apprenticeship, boosting their employment prospects and simply how to take that next step into their career.

On the day, Seetec will host a Pre-Apprenticeship Awareness Session in both the morning and afternoon.  In attendance will be Councillor Kilpatrick of West Didsbury and Labour Councillor of Chorlton, Councillor Hacking, who will be opening the morning session and MP for Denton and Reddish, Andrew Gwynne, who will be present in the afternoon.

Both sessions will give guests a chance to hear from the experts about traineeships and the benefits of a work placement as well as one-off talks from city centre employers who work in partnership with Seetec. There will also be opportunity to meet those currently on placements as well as tutors to find out more about how they can make the most of their apprenticeship scheme.
