Earn a qualification and meet new people with an apprenticeship
Over 330 people attended our Apprenticeships Fair at Harlands Road college site in Haywards Heath earlier this year.
The event was organised in partnership with West Sussex County Council to help people find out more about the apprenticeship opportunities available in Mid Sussex.
One of the attendees was Megan Hughes, an apprentice here with us at Mid Sussex District Council, who is keen for others to discover the benefits of becoming an apprentice.
"It’s great for gaining practical experience, earning a qualification and meeting new people", said Megan, who works as a Business Admin Apprentice in our Communications Team.
“I chose to go down the apprenticeship route because I felt as though I needed to gain more skills, knowledge and experience working in a different environment in order to progress in my chosen career.
“An apprenticeship is great for anyone who wants to gain practical experience in a new environment, earn a qualification as you work and meet new people.
“I would encourage anyone who wants to work towards their chosen career to consider an apprenticeship, because you have the opportunity to progress in your chosen company and earn money at the same time.”
Apprenticeships are no longer age restricted and are a great way to gain a qualification while working and earning at the same time. If you would like to find out more about apprenticeships visit https://www.midsussex.gov.uk/about-us/apprenticeships/
