Apprenticeships event brings together employers and students in Exeter
Hundreds of young people from across Devon will have a chance to meet potential employers at Sandy Park in Exeter today.
As part of National Apprenticeship Week, employers and training providers have teamed up to showcase some of the training opportunities available to those preparing to leave full-time education.
Beginning with a business breakfast for employers, today's event is organised by Devon County Council in conjunction with the National Apprenticeship Service.
Pupils in Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 from all of Devon’s schools have been invited. Colleges will be on hand to answer questions, while a range of training providers and employers will be providing interactive demos and talks throughout the day.

Neil Sproats, post-16 leader at Okehampton Community College, said: “This event is ideal for our students to explore the world of apprenticeships and the potential opportunities that exist for them.
“Actually meeting real employers and other apprenticeship experts will be hugely beneficial to both students and college staff to increase their understanding of the programme. This provides a real alternative to students who may not wish to go down traditional routes like university and so we are all looking forward to the day.”
Lisa Swailes-Smith, head of Year 11 at Ilfracombe Community College, said: “The event will enable students who live in a relatively remote region to investigate the opportunities provided by employers outside the immediate locality and in the wider world.”
