Do you have an apprentice and want more insight into how to fully support them?

Are you an employer looking for the right Apprentice for your company?

Apprenticeships are a great way for people to learn on the job and there are so many more young people choosing the Apprenticeship route. During this event and Panel Q&A we will be hearing from apprentices and their journeys into work, and employers and how they have found taking on an apprentice and supporting them.

Before the Panel Q&A we will also be talking about the following points;

  • The search for the right candidate/Looking beyond the CV
  • The value of transferable skills
  • Barriers young people face when applying for Apprenticeships/Graduate Schemes
  • The Interview stage/Assessment days
  • Do employers give the right opportunities for young people to showcase their skills?
  • Competency/Strength based interview Q's for a young person with no work experience - What to expect from the answers.
