About this event

YBTN & Wiser Futures have collaborated on this event to equip teachers, careers advisors and other educational professionals with the knowledge and skills they need to support students who may choose to not go to university, but do an apprenticeship instead.

With the labour market changing, new roles being created and more students going down the apprenticeship route, this event will be insightful and empowering as we hear from various professionals and apprentices.

There will also be an opportunity to network and make meaningful connections.
