Dumfries & Galloway College hosting Scottish Apprenticeship Week events

DGC Principal Joanna Campbell

DUMFRIES and Galloway College (DGC) is delighted to host two exciting events as part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week (March 6-10).

The recruitment days — one in partnership with Stranraer Academy at their campus (March 6) and one at the college’s Dumfries campus (March 9) are designed for businesses attending to promote their apprenticeship vacancies, and also for young people in the region to come along to speak to recruiters and possibly walk away with an apprentice role on the day.

The first event at Stranraer Academy is from 2.30pm to 6pm, where employers will be actively looking for candidates to fill the apprenticeship roles they have available. This is an opportunity for would-be apprentices to find out more about apprenticeships, what employers are looking for and apply for roles whilst there.

If you’re considering becoming a Modern Apprentice, there are so many fantastic reasons why it will be a positive experience that will help to boost your career opportunities. From your own personal confidence to the skills you will learn in your job role, all whilst working towards a qualification and earning money at the same time – the benefits are far and wide.

At the second event on March 9, employers will be at DGC’s Dumfries campus from 3pm to 6.30pm to promote their live vacancies and to speak to candidates about the type of person they are looking to fill their roles.

Taking on a Modern Apprentice could be a turning point for local businesses. Employers can recruit new talent or upskill your existing employees and help to shape the future of your workforce with this flexible, yet tailored approach to training staff.

College Principal Joanna Campbell said: “This is a great opportunity for both candidates and employers to connect during Scottish Apprenticeship Week.

“DGC is proud to host these events and to help unlock people’s potential for a Modern Apprenticeship role.”
