We are inviting you to bring your students to The Apprenticeship Show 2018.  2017’s show was fantastic we are expecting 2018 being bigger and better.  More businesses are now looking to recruit apprentices and are looking to higher level apprenticeship opportunities.  The Apprenticeship Levy has changed the way that businesses recruit apprentices and the opportunities they are offering .  In 2017 we also saw an increased number of students choosing apprenticeships compared to the traditional university route.

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.
