Northamptonshire Apprenticeship and Job Fairs - helping young people find their perfect match
The events are taking place across Northamptonshire, with the South Northants event being held at Towcester Hall, on Wednesday 18 April 2012, 2pm to 5pm.
The events are free to all local businesses, training providers and young people taking part.
At each event young people can talk to local employers and training providers, watch practical demonstrations and take part in speed matching interviews. The speed matching interviews involve a series of three minute interviews between young people aged 16-19, local employers and training providers. Young people can learn about the opportunities available whilst employers and training providers can get to know a little about the jobseekers, before deciding whether to go on to formal interviews.
The events are being organised by Connexions Northamptonshire with funding from the Northamptonshire Leadership Group. Established in 2011, the Leadership Group brings together all of the public sector leaders in the County to improve partnership working and promote Northamptonshire.
John Markham OBE, Chair of the Leadership Group said: “It’s crucial that young people in Northamptonshire have the opportunity to develop long-term, successful careers. Encouraging apprenticeships and job opportunities is a key priority for the Leadership Group, and we’re pleased to be supporting these important events.”
Connexions staff will be on hand to provide careers information, advice, guidance and support at each event.
