Update: Hundreds flock to Exeter apprenticeships event
Young people from across Devon are gaining an insight into a wealth of possible careers at an event in Exeter today as part of National Apprenticeship Week.
Employers including Flybe, Michelmores, Cosmic, Interserve and South West Media Group are among those on hand to speak to the hundreds of students flocking to Sandy Park to find out more about apprenticeships.
The day, organised by Devon County Council, features demonstrations of cooking skills from River Cottage and hairdressing by Skills Group UK. There are also workshops for teachers led by the National Apprenticeship Service and Education + Training Skills.
At a business breakfast earlier, speakers from Serco, ETS and others explained the benefits for employers of hiring apprentices.

County council leader John Hart said: “We believe in apprenticeships and we believe in apprentices. It’s a very good way of bringing people in, getting them to work, giving them experience and at the same time growing your own staff for the future.”
Howard Stamp, 20, a business administration apprentice with NHS Devon, said: “My experience has been excellent. I didn’t expect it but now I see myself on a career with the NHS. I’m continuing to learn and develop as a person.”
