Skillsfest 2013

Celebrating apprenticeships in the county

Celebrating apprenticeships in the county

On March 5th Gloucester Rugby club will hold the apprenticeship event Skillsfest 2013. The event will be attended by businesses, young people and training providers who are looking to learn more about the apprenticeship pathway. Last year over 1,300 people attended and this year is set to be even bigger.

In 2012, nearly 5,000 young people started apprenticeships in Gloucestershire, mainly with SMEs. To uphold this figure, more employers need to recognise the benefits that hiring an apprentice can bring to their business. This event will give employers the chance to speak to others who already offer apprenticeships.
