Apprenticeship Fair

Over 450 young people attended our recent Apprenticeship Fair.

The Fair, which was held at Darwin Court, took place during National Apprenticeship Week.

Attendees had the chance to meet potential employers from a range of industries, from construction and engineering to media and advertising.

There were over 700 apprenticeship opportunities on offer and representatives from 38 different companies including Transport for London, Group M, Berkeley, the British Academy of Jewellery, Heathrow and the NHS.

Leyla Payam (23, pictured second from the left above) said: "I’ve got a part time job but wanted to find out what else was out there. I knew there were loads of opportunities that I wasn't aware of and this has proved it. I was talking to the army, Heathrow and the NHS about the apprenticeships they have available and there were a fair few that interested me."

Three people – Daniel Saunders (18), Kieron Bell (18), Daniel Butler (19) – gained apprenticeships on the day and another four were shortlisted for interviews. We're hoping to hear about many more people over the coming months.

Our next Apprenticeship Fair will take place in September.
