We are hosting an Apprenticeship Open Day and Evening on Wednesday 17th June between 11am-1.30pm and 4.30pm-7pm at our main campus on Francis Street in Halifax for all students considering apprenticeships.

The College has an established Apprenticeship programme and currently train over 530 Apprentices across 325 employers. The event is the perfect opportunity to find out about the broad range of apprenticeships vacancies available across a variety of industry sectors from Digital Marketing and IT to Business Administration and Hospitality & Catering. Come along and meet tutors, current apprentices and employers, look around the College’s state-of-the-art facilities and gather all the information and advice you need to make your decision about your future.

Andrew Rodney, Director of Business Development said: “Calderdale College are very pleased to have over 530 apprentices working towards an apprenticeship qualification. It demonstrates the value that employers now put on the apprenticeship qualification as a means to train, not just school leavers but also existing members of staff who are looking to enhance their current skills.

“It is very rewarding to know that since last September we have supported well over 200 school and college leavers to enter the workforce for the first time, by identifying good local employers to host an apprentice and matching the right individual to the vast array of apprenticeship job roles.

“Employers that have taken on an apprentice for the first time have received the national apprenticeship grant, a fund of £1,500 to help employers embed systems and support their apprentice,” continued Andrew.

Adrian Furness, Claims Director at Covéa Insurance said:“We launched our Apprenticeship programme with Calderdale College 3 years ago; they’ve been a great partner to work with and the programme has been a huge success.  We’ve found that the programme provides an excellent route for young people into professional insurance roles, with 83% of our apprentices progressing into higher skilled roles and 16% going on to study for further qualifications.  We’ve also seen really high retention levels meaning that for us and our apprentices, apprenticeships are a really effective and successful recruitment method.”
