More than 400 people attended the apprenticeship event
On 29 November, Manchester Metropolitan University held the first Apprenticeships Open Evening of the academic year, with over 400 people attending.
Delegates were able to attend sessions and learn more about apprenticeship opportunities in Business Management, Digital & Technology Solutions, Legal Services and Chemical Science. Future apprentice candidates were also able to network with employers in an exhibition area.
It certainly seems that the word is out as far as Degree Apprenticeships are concerned and the interest from students is growing all the time. The message that you no longer need to choose between work and university, and all the benefits an apprenticeships can bring, is certainly hitting home with students.
Liz Gorb, Director of Apprenticeships at Manchester Met said:
“Young people’s awareness of Degree Apprenticeship opportunities is certainly increasing and we have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of people attending tonight. We hope to be able to welcome many more to our next open evening in March, during National Apprenticeship Week”
Employers who attended the event commented on the high calibre of the individuals they met and the success of the event in bringing them together with a large pool of potential applicants.
