A CONSTRUCTION training association will be showcasing careers to students across Carmarthenshire at a special event later this month.

CCTAL, the independent construction training association in Carmarthenshire will be joining the Choose Your Future Carmarthenshire event.

The event will see 2,500 students from years 10 to 13 in schools and colleges across the county invited to the event to find out about the wide range of career opportunities on offer and routes that they can pursue.

CCTAL will offer industry expertise and information about training for potential apprentices and trainees. There will also be a chance to see what it is like in a work environment by using state-of-the-art virtual reality technology.

Lynette Daniels, CCTAL training manager, said: “We are thrilled to be part of the Choose Your Future event this year. It is a fantastic opportunity for both young people and businesses – students get to explore the vast career options available to them, and businesses have the chance to showcase their work.

“The CCTAL team can’t wait to meet the students and talk about what the construction industry can offer – so come with questions, and let’s talk about all the great opportunities in construction!”

The Choose Your Future Carmarthenshire event will take place in the Supporters Village Arena at Pac Y Scarlets, Llanelli on Friday, February 22 between 9am and 6pm. The event is organised by Careers Wales in partnership with Coleg Sir Gar, Carmarthenshire County Council and Castell Howell Foods.
