More than 70 of the country’s leading employers are showcasing their apprenticeship opportunities at this year’s National Apprenticeship Show held in Greater Manchester.
This year’s National Apprenticeship Show is taking place at the Bolton Arena toady – Wednesday, October 17 and Thursday, October 18.
This is an opportunity for individuals to come face-to-face with the massive range of apprenticeships available.
Over 16,000 school children, parents, teachers and ‘work ready’ individuals are expected to attend the two-day event to capture the opportunity to discuss in person the career paths offered by employers.
The Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) are hosting a dedicated small-to-medium enterprise (SME) zone at the show to highlight the phenomenal range of opportunities available across Greater Manchester in employers of all sizes and sectors.
Approximately 80 per cent of apprenticeship opportunities in Greater Manchester are within small-to-medium enterprises and they are essential in ensuring our people have the best possible opportunities to start or develop their career.
Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, said:
“The National Apprenticeship Show is a fantastic opportunity for young people to find out the apprenticeships available to them.
“I want to ensure that everyone in Greater Manchester has the chance to get on in life and the best way to do this is by giving people the right skills alongside great employment and apprenticeship opportunities.
“This event is helping us to get a step closer to preparing our young people for the world of work by making them aware of the brilliant opportunities that are available in our dynamic regional economy.”
