Festival of Apprenticeship returns online to celebrate National Apprenticeship Week

The Festival of Apprenticeships in partnership with Pathway Group kicks off today with a week long programme of sessions to support young people in finding out more about early career opportunities.

The campaign advocates, promotes and celebrates Apprenticeships. This is no ordinary Careers Fair; this is celebratory event that not only promotes the value apprenticeships can deliver for young people, but also gives them the knowledge and expertise about how to apply for the right one for them.

The weeklong event will feature 4 daily sessions between 12pm and 2pm by a number of large corporate organisations and training providers about all of the different apprenticeship opportunities available to young people when they leave school or college. These include BT Group, Compass Group, EY, Severn Trent, DLA Piper, the NHS and many more.

Students, teachers and parents can tune in live and join the conversation or catch up at any time post event when convenient for them.
