Apprenticeship Expo and Awards 2020



Our annual Expo and Awards event, held at the iconic Sheldonian Theatre, is a fantastic way for us to celebrate all of our apprentices and staff undertaking Apprenticeship training to develop their careers. It is also a perfect opportunity for all University staff to attend and speak to all of our training providers about how Apprenticeships may be useful in their departments, either by recruiting entry level roles or developing employees.
