As part of National Apprenticeship Week 2023 (Monday 6th to Friday 12th February), The Apprenticeship Hub – in collaboration with City of York Council and North Yorkshire Business and Education Partnership (NYBEP) Ltd – are bringing employers and future apprentices together for an opportunity to connect on Wednesday 8th February.
The Skills for Life Apprenticeship Fair – named after 2023’s National Apprenticeship Week theme – will see employers and apprenticeship providers from a wide range of sectors from across the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding region under one roof to discuss their apprenticeship opportunities with attendees.
Employers exhibiting at the event include: the British Army, City of York Council, Hays Travel, JCT600, Jet2, Nestle, Network Rail, Northern Railway, Portakabin, and Springfield Healthcare, plus many more.
Apprenticeships are available to anyone aged 16 or over who wants to gain hands-on, paid experience in their chosen occupation whilst achieving a recognised qualification ranging from Level 2 (GCSE Level equivalent) to Level 7 (Master’s Degree equivalent). The event comes after the success of The Apprenticeship Hub’s 2022 fair, which attracted over 350 attendees. It will provide an opportunity for those considering apprenticeships to meet employers, explore their options and tap into the region’s expertise to find out more about apprenticeships.
Vicky Wright, Project Manager for The Apprenticeship Hub, is delighted to be providing employers with this opportunity to recruit their future workforce. She said: “Recruitment is a big issue in the region at the moment, so we’re pleased to be working with City of York Council and NYBEP Ltd to provide this opportunity to put employers in touch with potential new recruits. Apprenticeships are a fantastic opportunity to attract fresh, willing and dedicated talent into any business, and are a benefit to both employer and apprentice.”
The Skills for Life Apprenticeship Fair will run from 1pm to 6pm on Wednesday 8th February at York Racecourse. Attendees are welcome to drop in at any time throughout the day to browse the employer stalls and learn more about the wide range of opportunities available. Attendees can find more information and book their place at bit.ly/AppFair23.
