The event offers an informal afternoon of information, games, challenges, special guests and work opportunities, all highlighting options available to 16-24 year olds in Hastings.
From 1pm to 3pm, there will be an interactive event for unemployed 16-24 year olds who are exploring routes to employment, looking for work inspiration and access to apprenticeships. Training providers, colleges and support agencies will be on-hand to provide advice and guidance on opportunities.
“With over 1,500 different jobs across 170 industries, apprenticeships and traineeships offer a great route into employment. Whether you have just finished school and are looking for that first step towards finding your career or are ready to step towards a higher or degree-level apprenticeship, this event will help you find your feet” said Cllr Dawn Poole the council’s lead member for regeneration.
She added: “Come along and meet employers and take part in employability workshops and challenges. Current apprentices will be telling their stories and letting you in to a few secrets about how they are able to work, learn and play and how some overcame hurdles to secure a dream job”.
From 4pm to 7pm parents, carers, young people and teachers are invited to come along and find out how apprenticeships have been changing offering a wide range of local job opportunities including engineering, marketing, nursing, gas maintenance, events management and farming.
An event will also be held in Eastbourne on 7 March, with pop-up events in Lewes 6 March, Crowborough 8 March, Uckfield 10 March and Hailsham 11 March.
