Are you a parent or carer looking for clear information about what apprenticeships entail?


Apprenticeships in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) are a really good option for many young people seeking a career. But as a parent or carer how can you help guide them through the process if you don’t know what’s involved?


National Apprenticeship Week, running from 8-14 February 2021, will provide opportunities for young people to find out more about apprenticeships (including actual apprenticeships opportunities) so why not put yourself in a more informed position to help them by joining our free online session.


This event will include:


  • A focus on STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths careers.
  • Information on the key growth industries in Leeds City region (covering West Yorkshire) – highlighting employment sectors for young people.
  • An explanation of what an apprenticeship is and the different qualifications that can be achieved.
  • The role of training providers.
  • An opportunity to hear from a local employer.
  • Interviews with current apprentices to find out first hand what being an apprentice means.


Presenters from West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Leeds City College will both be speaking on the night.
