Lancashire’s Largest Apprenticeship & Careers Expo is returning for 2019

Following on from two successful events in 2017 and 2018 Lancashire Apprenticeship Expo will be returning to Preston’s Guild Hall on March 26 2019. With over 70 regional employers ranging from engineering giants Leyland Trucks to legal specialists Harrison Drury attending, there will be more local career opportunities available than ever before.

The Expo is being supported by Preston’s College, Blackpool and The Fylde College, UCLan and one of the region’s largest apprenticeship employers, the NHS.

Also, many of Lancashire’s colleges and training providers will also be present, making finding a career through the apprenticeship program even more accessible.

Lead organiser Shout Futures’ Director Andrew Richardson explained: “We are delighted to take over the full organisation and promotion of the event. We believe passionately in the positive impact that apprentices can bring to all sizes of business. Between our network of members, the wider business community and the region’s colleges, universities and training providers, we a perfectly positioned to maximise on the potential this event undoubtably has.

“Our event is much more than a recruitment event. As part of the region’s largest business networking organisation, Shout Network, we will be challenging employers to consider upskilling their current workforces through the apprenticeship route.

“The 2019 event will offer anybody interested in apprenticeships more local and relevant choices than ever before.”

Schools wishing to book their students on the event can also take advantage of a limited bursary, which is available to help with any costs for transport.

The event will also include independent careers support provided by the Apprentice Factory who will be on hand to provide information, advice and guidance for any person, whatever age or background, to discover more about their careers options and get practical help on how to get to where they want to be.
