Open Events 2021-2022

Greater Manchester SkillCentre

We are delighted to be able to invite young people to our face-to-face Open Evening where they will be able to have a look around our facilities and speak to our industry-trained tutors.

The Greater Manchester SkillCentre is a purpose-built, state-of-the-art training facility, specifically built for training the next generation of apprentices and trainees.

Whilst we offer a wide range of apprenticeships and adult courses, this Open Evening is aimed at young people aged 16-18 who are interested in starting one of our Pre-apprenticeship Study Programmes in the following subject areas:

  • Construction Multi-trade
  • Plastering
  • Paint & Decorating
  • Plumbing
  • Automotive Light Vehicle Mechanics  
  • Automotive Paint repair  
  • Engineering
  • Electrical Installation 
  • Carpentry and Joinery 

What is a Pre-apprenticeship Study Programme?
These courses are for young people aged 16-18 who wish to progress onto an apprenticeship but don’t feel quite ready. They will gain hands-on experience that employers are looking for and a nationally recognised qualification. On successful completion, our learners are supported with opportunities for progression onto one of our apprenticeships.
