DUDLEY South MP Mike Wood is getting set to host his seventh annual Apprenticeship Fair later this week.

Set to run between 3pm and 5pm on Friday March 31 at Kingswinford Community Centre in High Street, Kingswinford, the event will give people across the Dudley borough a chance to hear about a wide range of apprenticeships on offer.

Dudley College, Halesowen College, Walsall College and City of Wolverhampton College will be among the big organisations exhibiting on the day – as well as businesses and public sector employers like West Midlands Police, Greene King Brewery, Lloyds Bank, G4S Cash Solutions and more.

Conservative MP Mr Wood, who last Friday welcomed Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to the borough, said: “This will be the seventh Apprenticeship Fair I have held since becoming Dudley South’s Member of Parliament in 2015 and I am really pleased Kingswinford Community Centre can host us again this year.”

He added: “A wide range of organisations will be showcasing the opportunities they have for people of all ages – so, if you’re considering a new career path, please do come along and find out more about the apprenticeship routes on offer.”

The event is free to attend and there is free car parking.
