Apprenticeship access points open up in Nottingham

In order to give job-hunters in Nottingham more opportunities, three apprenticeship access points have opened up in the city centre. This is part of the council’s drive to make applying for an apprenticeship easy and simple.

Applications can be made on the spot at the centres and specially trained staff can provide advice about next steps.

Steven Hewes, a business administration apprentice for the city council, has been involved in the creation of the centres. He said: “Setting up access points across the city will really help to streamline the process of applying for an apprenticeship.

“There’s a huge amount of choice in the jobs available, and having people on hand at the centres to offer support and guide you through the process makes applying much easier.”

Councillor Nick McDonald, the city council’s portfolio holder for jobs and growth, said: “The introduction of access points where support for applications is easily accessible will show more people that apprenticeships are a great route into their chosen career.”
