The day will start off with a panel discussion from some of the top companies there, who will explain the benefits of doing an apprenticeship, and be able to answer all of your questions.

Next we’ll hear from a panel made up of a training provider, college and university to understand their involvement with apprenticeships, and find out their tips on how to apply.

In the afternoon you’ll get the chance to network with all of the companies who are there, so you can find out what kind of apprenticeships they offer, how you can apply and ask any other questions you have. Some of the companies you’ll get to meet include:

More on The Tech Partnership

The Tech Partnership is a network of almost 1,000 employers from all sectors, who are working together to help solve the shortage of digital skills in the UK. Their aim is to bring together employers, educators and the government to provide information and programmes to help young people to start their career in tech.

This year numerous companies who are part of The Tech Partnership, such as Sky, BT and IBM, will be offering apprenticeships across different sectors to give you real work experience and training, and help you start your career in tech. The Apprenticeships Insight Day will be a one-day event that brings together lots of these companies, giving you the chance to find out exactly what happens during an apprenticeship and what kind of opportunities each company has on offer.
