Local organisations have the chance to inspire the next generation by taking part in an interactive careers and apprenticeship event.
Over 1,000 year 9 and 10 pupils from 16 the Tameside secondary schools will be attending the annual Tameside Careers and Apprenticeships Exhibition (TCAE).
The invitation only exhibition is being held on Thursday 13 June in Stalybridge Civic Hall. It features interactive and engaging activities from a variety of businesses and training providers.
The local event is focused on raising aspirations and awareness of the variety of opportunities available to pupils when they turn 16. It's been designed to support schools in delivering effective careers information, advice and guidance to pupils.
TCAE is sponsored by Tameside Council, Ashton Sixth Form College, Tameside College and Clarendon Sixth Form College. The partnership of Tameside Council and Tameside's leading providers of further education is a joint commitment to bringing the best experience to local pupils at the event.
It will feature stands from organisations and training providers including Village Hotels, Aldi, Your Tax Shop, Brother UK, Royal Army, NHS, Active Tameside, Willmott Dixon, OTC Training, The Manchester College, The Growth Company, Juice Academy, JTL Training, SETA Training and Michael John Training.
Cllr Leanne Feeley, Tameside Council Executive Member for Lifelong Learning, said: "This event is a great opportunity for local organisations to connect with the next generation of the workforce, thanks to the fantastic support we've received from schools across the borough. In previous years young people attending have been inspired by stalls and exhibits leading to interest in new careers."
