Last year’s events saw 200 young people meet with prospective apprenticeship employers, and discover opportunities available to them through local businesses.

In addition to local employers, this year’s supporting organisations include Building Plymouth, Livewell Southwest, the Army Careers Centre and the Royal Air Force Careers Centre. They will be attending various campuses.

Sally Foard, director of development at the Cornwall College Group, said hiring an apprentice is “a great way for businesses to develop motivated, skilled, employees, who bring with them fresh ideas and energy”.

“Many businesses are faced with skills shortages at present, hiring an apprentice enables them to grow their own talent and succession plan for the future,” she continued.

“An apprenticeship enables young people and adult learners to earn while learning on the job, gain a real qualification and a real future. We are the largest provider of apprenticeships in the South West, working with thousands of businesses and individuals across the region every year. Our experienced apprenticeship recruitment team work hard to match individuals with inspiring employers.”
