Apprentice Recruitment Open Day
As part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week, GTG Training is holding an Apprentice Recruitment Open Day on Thursday 9 March 2017 from 10am until 3pm. You are invited to attend a showcase of Modern Apprenticeship opportunities, giving pupils an insight into careers in Mechanics, Vehicle Body Repair, Vehicle Spray Paint, Vehicle Parts, Business Administration, Customer Service, Alarm and Garage Engineering.
This is a fantastic opportunity to view leading-edge training facilities, meet current apprentices and speak with various companies that employ apprentices and find out more about what they have to offer. Apprenticeship programmes offer people aged 16 and over a way to earn while they learn, as they work towards a recognised qualification, skilled employment and greater career prospects.
Strathclyde University - Engineering the Future for Girls
Engineering the Future for Girls is being delivered in collaboration with BP and BAM Nuttall and is designed to engage girls in S3, going into S4, in a wide range of engineering challenges that will inspire them to become the next generation of engineers. The summer school is fully-funded by BP and BAM Nuttall and all student costs, including travel, will be covered. Strathclyde will accept applications from girls with any range of subject choices at National 5.
The summer school is non-residential and therefore pupils should be able to make their way each day to the University of Strathclyde campus in the heart of Glasgow City Centre. Teachers are not required to accompany pupils during the week. For the pupils’ convenience, mentors have been arranged to accompany pupils from and to Queen Street train station, Glasgow Central train station and Buchanan Bus Station at the start and end of each day.
Pupils should apply at http://www.strath.ac.uk/engineering/outreach/engineeringthefutureforgirls using the online application form. The deadline for applications is 10 March 2017. A confirmation email is sent upon receipt of application. The selection panel will meet in late March/early April to review the applications received and all applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by 7 April 2017. An automated email is sent to teachers informing them of the application submitted and requesting a supporting statement. The supporting statement for each student should be submitted online using a designated link by 17 March 2017, for the application to be considered.
