BARNSLEY Council is hosting an apprenticeship event at Oakwell next month.

Taking place between 4pm and 7pm on Tuesday, June 18, those interested will be able to learn how apprenticeships work.

Matt O’Neill, executive director for growth and sustainability, said: “Apprenticeships are a fantastic option to consider.

“They can help people to get started and progress at work, while gaining nationally recognised qualifications.

“If you have an interest in learning more about apprenticeships, please come along.

“This event is suitable for people of all ages, including young people and their families.

“It could be the first step towards a great career.”
