"Apprenticeships are open to anyone aged 16 and above, and whether you are leaving school or want a change in career later on in life, they offer that chance to learn and upskill.

“It is great to see we have so many apprenticeship offers this year, allowing more people to grab that chance in a career they wish to pursue. I encourage anyone thinking about to get to one of the events either in person or virtually to find out more.”
