As part of National Apprenticeship Week 6-10th March SETA ( Stockport Engineering Training Association) are holding an Open Day on Wednesday 8th March from 10 am to 8 pm at their engineering training centre in Reddish, Stockport .

The event is aimed at young people interested in engineering apprenticeships and their parents after leaving school or college and at Greater Manchester employers seeking to recruit engineering apprentices in 2017.

This is a very good opportunity to see the centre training facilities, meet staff and current apprentices, talk with employers who are exhibiting and take away Apprenticeship application forms.

SETA is one of the leading Engineering Apprenticeship providers in the North West and has been helping young people start their engineering careers since 1966.

Each year SETA’s OPEN DAY attracts hundreds of young people and parents, who want to find out more about Engineering Apprenticeships and meet prestigious local employers who are recruiting Apprentices. 

This years’ theme for National Apprenticeship Week is “ the Ladder of Opportunity “.

NAW 2017 (6 to 10 March 2017) will celebrate apprenticeships, across all industries, and all levels, with the theme ‘ladder of opportunity’. In its 10th anniversary year, the week will give everyone involved in the apprenticeship community the perfect chance to celebrate individual stories of career progression over the last decade from traineeships through to higher and Degree apprenticeships

Each year SETA helps young people secure Apprenticeships and employment and helps companies recruit and train Apprentices, who are taking their first steps on the ladder of opportunity that Apprenticeships provide including progression to Advanced and Higher Apprenticeships.

The SETA Open Day will be held during National Apprenticeship Week and will give you the opportunity to:

  • See the engineering training facilities, meet current apprentices and find out about the practical and theoretical training
  • Meet employers who are recruiting Apprentices for 2017/18
  • Take away an Apprenticeship Application Pack

SETA has contacted nearly 40 schools to promote the event and is also interested in hearing from any employers who would like to attend with a stand. The event is open to anyone with an interest in the sector and in training and apprenticeships.
