Head of employer engagement Louise Wicks said: “This event was set up to shine a light on some of the amazing businesses and individuals that we support via apprenticeships.

“Apprenticeships don’t always get the recognition they deserve in comparison with other qualifications such as A-levels, therefore we are happy to champion their importance.”
