A leading recruitment is joining forces with a training organisation to showcase the benefits of apprenticeships.

North Tyneside-based Labour4U has organised a half day event at The Point, Sunderland, on August 11 – giving both companies and students the opportunity to find out about apprenticeships across a range of sectors.

L4U is running the day in conjunction with Talent Training (UK) LLP, one of the country’s leading training and workforce development companies.

The event – which runs from noon until 5pm – will be a drop in for business people to discover apprenticeship options across a range of sectors including business administration, hospitality, travel and tourism, customer service, health and social care and logisitics.

Companies will be able to find out about the benefits to their organisations by taking on an apprentice.

Jon Bell, director of Labour4U, said: “This is a great opportunity for both students and companies to find out more about going down the apprenticeship route.

“We recognise through our day to day recruitment work the opportunities that are available in a range of careers and we are hoping both businesses and young people will come along and find out how we can help them.”

Young people aged between 16 and 24 are invited along on the day between 2pm to 6pm with business people able to drop in between noon and 1.30pm.

Refreshments will be provided during the day.
