Year 11 pupils at The Market Weighton School interested in obtaining an apprenticeship post-16 attended an East Riding Apprenticeship Pathway event at Bishop Burton College.

Following a presentation, students were given information about apprenticeships available in the East Riding. The students met providers, colleges, employers, and present and past apprentices to ask about their experiences. They then attended a session in an IT suite, where they registered on the apprenticeship website and were shown how to apply for vacancies.

Students reported that the afternoon was very informative and helpful.
