Jobs fair today for apprentices

THE Scarborough Apprenticeship Jobs Fair is being held at the Spa Complex from 4pm to 7pm today.

People have the chance to meet advisors from the National Apprenticeship Service, local training providers, JobCentre Plus and Scarborough Jobmatch at the event.

Apprentices earn a wage and receive training to work towards nationally recognised qualifications.

Scores of people have found work thanks to the success of a Scarborough apprenticeship scheme. A total of 52 businesses in and around Scarborough have agreed to take on apprentices, with some learners in new positions.
