We brought some of our students to this event. Ken Farragher Center Manager spoke about the programs on offer such as motor mechanics, Electrical apprenticeship, Carpentry and Joinery apprenticeship. He said that it takes four years to complete any of these apprenticeships and that if students had difficulty with reading or numeracy that they had services in place to help apprentices.

Sean Brady from Chanelle Pharmaceuticals Manufacturing Ltd that specialises in the development, production, marketing and distribution of generic animal pharmaceutical products spoke about the company and the openings that they have at present. He told us about the plant and what they are presently involved in. They have 485 staff and are hoping with the expansion that they are planning to hire more staff.

Students did a tour of the centre and felt that it was a very worthwhile visit. for more information on apprenticeships click on this link
