Calling all future apprentices (and parents!)
If you're leaving school this year, are based in any of the areas listed below, and you're thinking that a career in building & construction would be a sweet choice for a great lifestyle, come along and meet some current BCITO apprentices and hear what it's like to be an apprentice.
With more than 11,000 BCITO apprentices currently in training, some of them would like to share with you their 'trade secrets' on how they got into an apprenticeship.
Join us to find out how you can earn and learn and get qualified straight from school. Bring the folks if you like, they're sure to be interested!
