Campaign launch on Monday

Hastings Borough and Rother District Councils will be launching a new apprenticeship campaign in Hastings at the Stade Hall, on Monday (March 9).

You’re Hired East Sussex is a five-month, county-wide campaign to find 500 employers who will make a pledge to take on an apprentice. The campaign also seeks to support 500 work-ready young people into apprenticeships.

The launch events are taking place during National Apprenticeship Week at Eastbourne Town Hall, Lewes Town Hall and the Stade Hall, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. Councillor Peter Chowney, Hastings Borough Council’s lead member for regeneration, added: “This is an opportunity for businesses to make a pledge to take on an apprentice or to simply find out more about what apprenticeships can do for your business. It’s also an opportunity to chat to other employers, apprentices and apprentice training providers.”
