A SCHOOL has thanked local businesses and training providers for supporting its apprenticeship information evening.

Stokesley School held the event primarily for its Year 10 and 11 students but was open to all.

From aviation to conservation, beautician to technician, building to filming, there was a strong line-up of career avenues represented by employers and colleges at the school’s bi-annual event.

More than 20 employers and colleges attended, including Hambleton Community Action, who offer the popular ‘Wheels to Work’ scheme, loaning mopeds to help students living in rural areas travel to work.

Janine Harrison-Henry, careers leader at Stokesley School, said: “I am delighted with the incredible backing the event received, appealing to companies and training providers across a range of industries, giving our students a taste of the many job roles and fields available to them.

"There was a real buzz throughout the evening and I would like to thank students, parents and supporters."
