A week to go until biggest apprenticeship and skills show
The region’s biggest apprenticeship event returns to Telford next Thursday (5 March).
This year, the show returns as The Apprenticeship, Employment and Skills Show to the International Centre.

Apprenticeship vacancies are on the rise with more employers offering them and more varied options available. In addition, applications are for apprenticeship placements are on the rise.
The Apprenticeship, Employment and Skills Show allows you to come and meet the employers and find out more in person.
But the Show isn’t just about apprenticeships this year. If you’re looking for a new career or interested in a particular career path but not sure what qualifications you might need, come along and ask the employers you want to work for.
Visitors to the event will find out about the wide range of career and training opportunities available across Telford and Wrekin, Shropshire and the wider West Midlands.
The show is the largest of its kind in the area and offers visitors a fantastic opportunity to find out more about the wide range of careers available in the area, the local companies that are offering positions and the training providers that could help you reach your chosen career.
There will be opportunities for hands on activities that employers and training providers are offering to get a better understanding of the roles available. You will be able to speak employers that may be in a business sector you are interested in going into. They will be able to offer support and advise you with what options are available, helping you make that all important decision about your first career or even a change in career.
