Apprenticeships Open Day Success
The Basepoint operated Gosport Business Centre recently jointly hosted an open day with PETA Ltd for local businesses and young people to learn about apprenticeships, and how they can enhance career prospects and benefit businesses.
Jan May, Business Development Manager and Chris Arkell a Field Trainer and Assessor, both from PETA, were on hand all day dealing with a constant stream of young people and local companies who visited the business centre to find out how they could benefit from being - or employing - an apprentice.
With over 50 enquiries, the day was hailed a great success, Chris Arkell said: “The turnout was fantastic, I am so glad we could help so many young would-be apprentices.”
Andrew Weston, the centre manager of Gosport Business Centre, said: “There are three companies based here who are now looking at the opportunity of taking on an apprentice after receiving advice from PETA which is great news for all concerned. This just shows that people see the value of what an apprenticeship can give to both the individual and the business.”
