Two events in one!
As part of our June Open Event on Thursday 23 June 2022, we’ll also be hosting the Apprenticeship and Get the Job Fair at our Freemen’s Park campus, which is a companion event designed to put you in front of local employers and apprenticeship providers to get help and advice on applying for both jobs and courses.
What is it?
The FREE event will be held at our Freemen’s Park Campus from 4pm-8pm and will involve multiple partnered employers from the Leicester and Leicestershire area to talk to new, current, and prospective students – as well as members of the general public – about upcoming oppurtunites, advice and guidance on careers, and any job vacancies that they have available that are ready to start immediately!
As we are still inviting companies to attend will be updating this page on a regular basis with a list on confirmed attendees – so keep checking back regularly to stay up-to-date.
What’s happening on the day?
If you’re looking for an apprenticeship, career change, a new job, or want to get back into education to improve your work prospects, then this is the event for you.
Both fairs will run alongside our June Open Event, where our staff will showcase our full range of opportunities across part-time hobby courses, entry-level to level 3 courses, access to education courses, and apprenticeships.
There will also be representatives available on the evening from the College’s Welfare, Finance, and Careers teams to speak directly to you about returning to education, options, and finances.
Travel between our campuses
Worried about how to get around between campuses? Don’t be! We’ve arranged for two free minibus shuttle services to run during both the June Open day and this event so that you won’t have to use a drop of fuel!
This free service is available for anyone attending either the Open day or Get the Job fair to travel between our campuses freely, with each bus aiming to arrive at a campus every 20 minutes. We have arranged for two services to operate on the day, operating on the routes shown below
- Route 1, Campus circular service – this free service will begin at our Abbey Park campus before travelling on to the St Margarets campus, and then onward to our Freemen’s park campus before circling back to Abbey Park to begin the route again.
- Route 2, Apprenticeship & Get the Jobs fair special service – this free service will run a dedicated path back and forth between our Abbey park campus and Freemen’s park campus over the course of the evening.
Meaning that if you wanted to travel directly from work or school, or even just park outside of the city to avoid traffic – you can visit any one of our campuses and take advantage of free travel to and from any one of them and back again, freely.
Why not make the most of your visit and attend the June Open day as well? With free travel between sites you can do both without breaking a sweat!
