Massive turnout for Apprentice Expo

Thousands of youngsters passed through the doors of Preston Guild Hall on Tuesday 14 March to find out about apprenticeships with some of Lancashire’s most well-known employers.

Staff from Lancashire Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner were on hand to answer questions about careers within the policing family. Young people who attended wanted to know about apprenticeships, the variety of jobs within policing, what qualifications they may need and how to apply.

Nest Lancashire were also on hand to answer questions and let visitors know how they support young victims of crime in Lancashire.

Clive Grunshaw’s, who currently employs two apprentices to help with the daily duties and general running of his office, said: “Apprenticeships are a fantastic opportunity for those who want to take an alternative path into policing. We currently have two apprentices in our office who support the various departments from media and communications to executive support.

“It has been encouraging to see the interest from young people and I am proud to be able to help fund such a successful event.”

A Lancashire Constabulary spokesperson added: “The day was a huge success. It was great to see and talk to so many people about the different careers available within the force. As well chatting to officers and staff, people had the chance to give us their views on policing in our video booth, try on a public order kit and even have their fingerprints taken.”

Apprenticeships give you the chance to earn a wage, gain a qualification and benefit from important industry experience to kick-start your career.
