It’s always nice to be able to meet and chat with people who can help further your career. It gives you an opportunity to ask lots of questions, get great tips and share experiences on how to find and apply for an apprenticeship. While the Apprenticeship Support by Be More Team are happy to talk to you over the telephone, there is now a further way of getting support. It provides you with a growing network of venues across the Liverpool City Region providing you with expertise to help you secure your apprenticeship and build your career.

In today’s economic climate we know it’s tough getting a job. It requires a combination of the right skills, persistence and perseverance to get where you want to be. From writing the right CV to presenting yourself well at interview, these are skills in themselves that need to be developed, honed and practiced. Local Youth Hubs have mentors and coaches you can access for free that will help you develop these skills and assist you in your search for an apprenticeship.

Local Youth Hubs, are a combined initiative between Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, The Department for Work and Pensions and Employment & Training Support Services across the Liverpool City Region. The network of hubs is growing and there are nine of them currently. Importantly, all of them have a tried and trusted record of working successfully with young people. They also have strong collaborative arrangements with other organisations delivering services that support and benefit young people.
