Schools and Colleges must now encourage students to consider apprenticeship routes as well as further and higher education and this is a fantastic way of doing this.  We anticipate over 100 businesses and training providers being present, showcasing their businesses and the opportunities they have to offer.  The event will be inspiring and interactive, as well as informative.
