Are you the parent of a future apprentice?

Here is your chance to ask any questions to an employer directly. We will have representatives from HR alongside current and former apprentices. And some of our apprentices are bringing their own parents along so you can chat parent to parent about their experiences.

Our online chat session is Friday 12 February, 17:00-18:00.

It’s National Apprenticeship Week, an annual event coordinated by the government’s National Apprenticeship Service. It’s an opportunity for students and their parents, teachers and careers advisors to connect with employers, learn about the benefits of apprenticeships and find out about the great apprenticeship opportunities on offer.

Learn more on the National Apprenticeship Service’s Twitter account and check out the hashtags #NAW2021 and #BuildTheFuture.
