Apprenticeship help in Welwyn Garden City

CAREER advice was provided to youngsters at a WGC community fun day.

The YMCA Training Community Day and Apprenticeship Event featured stalls from Future Pathways, Oaklands College, Herts Regional College, Ridgemond Training, Credit Union, the Prince’s Trust and Herts Fire and Rescue Service.

Stallholders helped teens with queries about possible future careers.

Around 100 people attended the event at the Pomegranate Cafe, in Woodhall Lane, which also included stalls manned by youngsters from the YMCA.

Sally Ann Williams, manager of Future Pathways and a trustee of the Pomegranate Cafe, said: “To have all these different people under one roof to offer opportunities to young people was brilliant.
