Why hire an apprentice?

Share this article

AS a small business, are you interested in taking on an apprentice but are put off because you don’t have the time, think it’ll cost too much or can’t face the red tape involved?

Those are some of the questions that will be answered at an early morning business breakfast for small and medium-sized businesses at the Boathouse in Wisbech on Thursday (October 27), 7.15-9.30am. It will explain the support available and dispel some of the myths surrounding apprenticeships.

There will be speakers from Cambridgeshire County Council, Fenland Partnership, the College of West Anglia, Business Link and Reader Electrical.

Attendance is free and breakfast will be provided but numbers are limited, so pre-booking is required. For more details, call Tom Hennessy on 01223-699935 or e-mail tom.hennessy@cambridgeshire.gov.uk.
