The Apprenticeship Show returns to Telford

One of the region’s biggest apprenticeship events is coming back to Telford next year.

The Apprenticeship Show returns to Telford International Centre for its fourth consecutive year on March 7.

The one-day event will bring together potential employees with businesses showcasing hundreds of opportunities and careers that exist now and in the future.

Stand bookings are now being taken for the 2019 show until January 31, with stand prices starting from £50.

The 2019 show is sponsored by Telford & Wrekin Council, The British Army, University of Wolverhampton, Shropshire Star and Express & Star and The Careers and Enterprise Company.

Apprenticeships are now available in more than 1,500 occupations across 170 industries, ranging from nuclear to fashion, law, banking and defence and are not just for school leavers.

The Army, for example, offers apprenticeships up to 32 years plus many others are available to people of all ages making them a great option for anyone looking to change career, improve their skills in order to secure a new role or re-enter the labour market after having taken time out for whatever reason.

Councillor Shirley Reynolds,Telford & Wrekin Council cabinet member for education and skills, said: "We’re delighted to be announcing that the show will return for its fourth year.

"Apprenticeships put candidates one step ahead of university graduates as they help build the right technical skills needed for industry though work experience, offer the qualifications of traditional study and offer a salary.


"We will have lots of local and national employers at the Apprenticeship Show with hundreds of opportunities for people to apply for and find out more.”

The government has announced a package of reforms this month aimed at providing flexibility for businesses allowing them to take full advantage of the benefits of employing apprentices.

The show runs from 12noon to 7.30pm and details for booking a stand or sponsorship packages can be found at or by emailing
