Colleges Join Forces to Launch ‘100 in 100’ Apprentice Recruitment Drive

Date: 25/02/2015


Two Rotherham Colleges are launching a joint campaign to recruit 100 Apprentices in 100 days as part of the upcoming National Apprenticeship Week.

The Dearne Valley College Apprenticeship team will be on hand at a number of events in the weeks leading up to National Apprenticeship Week to advise young people of the benefits of choosing an Apprenticeship as a post-16 route into the world of work. Those considering this option are invited to attend the Dearne Valley College Open Evening on Wednesday 18th March, 5pm-8pm at the College’s Manvers campus where they can gain tailored advice and information surrounding Apprenticeships and even apply for live vacancies on the evening. Rotherham College of Arts and Technology will also be hosting an event on the 3rd March to promote the joint campaign.

Principal and Chief Executive at Dearne Valley College, Martin Harrison said of the campaign:

“The College has seen its Apprenticeship scheme go from strength to strength, and the number of Apprentices we have recruited has more than doubled in the last 18 months, with 300 Apprentices currently enrolled with us and working within South Yorkshire Businesses. It’s fantastic to see that young people and employers in our region are recognising the fantastic work that Apprenticeships can bring, both in terms of progression and training opportunities for our young people, and for the development and increased success of the businesses who recruit them.”

“By challenging ourselves to recruit 100 Apprentices in 100 days, we hope to reinforce the message that Apprenticeships are fantastic for those looking to gain industry-specific qualifications and real working experience with local businesses across the region.”

For further information about the open evening, apprenticeships or any of the courses and training opportunities available, contact the College on 01709 513355, at, or visit the website at
