Apprenticeship Employment & Skills Show 2023 returns to Telford International Centre

The Apprenticeship, Employment and Skills Show 2023 is set to return bigger and better than ever this month - showcasing employment opportunities and apprenticeships across the region.

Apprenticeship Employment & Skills Show 2023 returns to Telford International Centre

The event is returning to Telford International Centre on Thursday 16 March 2023 (12 noon-7.30pm) after a three year absence and is the largest event of its kind this side of the NEC in Birmingham.

It is completely free for visitors of all ages to attend and promotes apprenticeships, jobs and training opportunities to people across Telford, Shropshire and the West Midlands. 

More than 50 of the biggest local and national employers and education providers will be there to highlight the wide range of opportunities they offer.

Telford & Wrekin Council is sponsoring the event along with The Careers & Enterprise Company, Integrated Care System (NHS Shropshire Telford and Wrekin), Telford College and Harper Adams University.

The show gives people the opportunity to meet employers and find out more in person about apprenticeships, job roles and training they are interested in.

For anyone looking for a new career or is interested in a particular career path but isn’t sure what qualifications or training they need, this event is the perfect starting point.

Attendees will be able to try hands-on activities on the day that employers and training providers are offering to get a better understanding of roles which are available.  

Employers will offer support, advice and help people make that all important decision about their first career or even a change in career.

Councillor Eileen Callear (Lab), Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for visitor economy, employment and skills said: “We’re delighted that so many local employers are supporting this year’s event to showcase the variety of apprenticeships, employment and training opportunities that exist within Telford and Wrekin and across the region.

“The show is an amazing opportunity for people of all ages to find out what’s available on their doorstep – helping to match people with apprenticeships and employment opportunities and supporting our employers as they aim to fulfil their recruitment needs and shape tomorrow’s workforce.”

Councillor Shirley Reynolds (Lab), Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for children, young people and families, added: “We’re really pleased that our hugely successful show is back.

“In 2020 we welcomed over 3,300 delegates and we hope to see even more at next month’s event.

“This is a great opportunity to support the apprenticeship, employment and training needs of our young people and families across the borough.”
