As part of National Apprenticeships Week, commencing 5th February 2024, Appris are opening their doors for candidates looking to start an Engineering and Manufacturing Apprenticeship in September 2024.
Representing over 200 engineering and manufacturing employers across the region, Appris is the largest provider of Engineering & Manufacturing Apprenticeships to the region’s employers.
Our open evening from 4pm – 7pm Thursday 8th February 2024 connects our employers with you as a potential apprentice, careers adviser or apprenticeship stakeholder. It’s also a great opportunity to talk to our Tutors, Assessors and current apprentices to find out what apprenticeships and training is really like.
This event will be ‘market-place’ style and you can talk to lots of employers offering apprenticeships in different engineering and manufacturing sectors such as Food & Drink, Oil & Gas, Aerospace, Military & Defence, Energy & Utilities, Renewable Energy, Automotive, Chemical Engineering, plus many more…
You will be able to apply for these roles on the evening, too. So, ensure you arrive prepared to meet your new employer!
To manage the event and throughput of candidates, we have allocated tickets for 3 x available sessions between 4pm to 5pm, 5pm to 6pm and 6pm to 7pm. Attendees can attend anytime during their allocated slot. However, it is highly recommended that you arrive at the start of your session (4pm, 5pm or 6pm) due to capacities in our centre.
NOTE: Only the potential applicant should take one ticket for one session time only. Parents or guardians are not required to take a ticket.
