Events include a return of the Nottingham Apprenticeship Conference taking place at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground for businesses interested in employing an apprentice.

The Conference is being run in conjunction with Nottingham College and Nottingham Jobs and will bring together businesses from across all sectors and industries.

Attendees will receive practical advice and guidance on how to access the tangible benefits apprenticeships can bring to business, as well as information on funding and the apprenticeships on offer in the local area.

Will Morlidge, Interim Chief Executive of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership will give a keynote speech on key aims, aspirations and challenges for the region and how Apprenticeships can help to build the future. This will be followed by industry specific roundtable discussions with employers, apprenticeship providers and apprentices.

Other events taking place during the week include a ‘match-making event’ for employers with apprenticeship vacancies and for those looking to study an apprenticeship. Confirmed employers include Experian, E.ON and Nottingham University Hospitals Trust.

Ashfield District Council is also holding an Apprenticeship Jobs Fair supporting local employers which will be attended by members of the NTU Apprenticeships team.

Finally, Friday 11 February also sees the reveal of the shortlist of the 2022 NTU Apprenticeship Awards for this year, which celebrate the hard work, success and achievements of our apprentices and their employers.

More information on all the events and the Awards can be found here.
