Thanks to everybody involved in Festomane’s Apprenticeship & Careers Show on 8th March 2018 at the University of Gloucestershire. Everybody, from the students and their parents looking for information on apprenticeships, to the companies exhibiting, the university hosting the event and the MPs lending their support, enjoyed the event and contributed to its success.
This year’s show, aimed at students aged 14+, was held in National Apprenticeships Week in the Year of Engineering. Its aim was to celebrate engineering and manufacturing, fire up enthusiasm for young people to train for a career in engineering and science and to help fill some existing engineering and manufacturing apprenticeship vacancies around the county.
As well as our exhibitors, we had workshops available on ‘Managing your student finances’, ‘Employability Skills’ and ‘University or Apprenticeship – Smashing The Misconceptions’ which ran throughout the event.
Special thanks to the Rt Hon Anne Milton MP, Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills and to Gloucester’s MP, Richard Graham, who both took time out of a very busy schedule to attend the event and chat with visitors and exhibitors.
Our exhibitors all loved the new, focused format for Festomane which brought them together with some very interesting potential future employees. They included:
