South Bristol Jobs and Apprenticeship Fair

Updated: Jan 19

29th February at South Bristol Skills Academy in Hengrove.

When I first became MP for Bristol South, I heard from many families about how difficult it was for young people to access education and training post-16. Local students have historically been among the least likely in the country to go to university, with many leaving school aged 16 with few qualifications and struggling to find work.


Apprenticeships and other post-16 training options offer young people the chance to learn the skills or earn the qualifications needed to access good jobs, but it’s shocking that in a city like Bristol – with a thriving job market – these opportunities aren’t available locally for many people. It’s been my priority to bring these options closer to home in Bristol South.


This is why I first set up the annual jobs and apprenticeships fair in 2017. It aims to help people in south Bristol match their ambitions with the needs of local businesses, particularly through apprenticeship schemes where students can learn while working.


The fair brings together a range of employers and organisations to help young people make the complex choice about their next step. It’s a chance for students to learn about the vacancies that are available locally and access important advice about their education or career.


Now in its seventh year, the fair has helped hundreds of people in south Bristol find secure employment and access valuable training.


Come and join us between 11am and 2pm on Thursday 29th February at the South Bristol Skills Academy, City of Bristol College, The Boulevard, Hengrove Park, Bristol BS14 0DB.
