People looking for work in Doncaster are invited to see what employment opportunities are out there at an apprenticeship open day.

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) in South Yorkshire has teamed up with Doncaster College to organise an apprenticeship event, when they will seek to encourage local businesses to rise to the challenge of providing apprenticeships and improving enterprise skills.

The open day takes place at Doncaster College on April 1 from 5.30pm, and local businesses are being encouraged to sign up for the event.

Other organisations involved with the open day include Doncaster council, Young Enterprise and various private sector training organisations.

The FSB Regional Chairman, Gordon Millward, said: “We are staging these events to strengthen the bridge between business and education and we urge businesses to come along and explore how they can play their part in addressing the future workforce skills challenge. If one-in-four SMEs in the UK took on an additional apprentice, the youth unemployment issue would disappear overnight. Long-term economic regeneration can only be nailed down by engaging with young people and providing the prospect of a secure and prosperous future – a prospect which former policies have demonstrably failed to provide.”

Businesses wanting to book on to the event should ring the FSB regional office on 0114 261 7132 or email
