To coincide with National Apprenticeship Week 2020, NTU, Nottingham College and Nottingham Jobs have come together to hold the first Nottingham Apprenticeships Conference. This event aims to provide practical advice and guidance on how to access the many tangible benefits apprenticeships can bring to business, and help you find innovative solutions to your business needs.

Open to businesses from across all sectors and industries, the morning will feature an inspirational key note speech from Sir John Peace, as well as providing attendees the opportunity to gain an insight into the apprenticeships on offer in the local area.

The later part of the conference will provide attendees the chance to take part in up to two industry specific round table discussions, and allow valuable networking opportunities with other businesses and experts from NTU, Nottingham College and Nottingham Jobs. The round table discussions will be based on sector, and will cover the following industries:
