TENBURY has missed out on a programme of apprenticeship road shows and jobs fair events being organised by Worcestershire County Council.

The events are being staged to help young people to consider what their career options might be.

But young people living in Tenbury will have to travel if they want to attend one of the events.

Whilst libraries and other venues throughout the county have been chosen Tenbury has been left out in the cold.

The exam results season is now complete for another year and Apprenticeships Roadshows are being held across the county to help young people of Worcestershire decide their next step.

These Apprenticeships Roadshows and job fairs have been organised by the Worcestershire Apprenticeships Hub and are taking place at libraries across Worcestershire.

They will showcase the wide variety of opportunities available to young people that are considering what to do after receiving their GCSE or A-Level exam results.

Councillor Marcus Hart, cabinet member with responsibility for Education and Skills said: “In addition to traditional A Levels, there are many exciting and rewarding choices available for young people to choose from, as part of the next stage of their academic or professional career.

“This includes study programmes, traineeships, vocational courses such as BTECs as well as apprenticeships. The apprenticeship roadshow is a great way to seek out further advice about what to do next and access information about what options are available.”

Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Communities, is pleased that the events are being staged but does not explain why Tenbury is not included.

Venues include Worcester, Kidderminster, Redditch, Malvern, Bromsgrove and Evesham.

Tenbury is one of the most isolated parts of the county.
