Milton Keynes College is to feature at the upcoming National Apprenticeship Show as Education and Learning Zone sponsor.
The National Apprenticeship Show, taking place on March 14 and 15 at Arena MK, part of the stadium:mk complex, will bring together employers, colleges and providers with anyone looking to find out more about what apprenticeships can offer.
The event marks the start of National Apprenticeship Week with the aim of reinforcing the message that apprenticeships work for both candidates and employers alike.

By working with employers, apprenticeships offer a real opportunity to develop skills and gain expertise in your chosen field in return for a real wage, making it a prestigious path to a successful
In addition, once learners have completed their apprenticeship, they have the option to progress to a higher level apprenticeship – up to degree level, or continue their education gaining further
qualifications should they choose.
Visitors to the National Apprenticeship Show will be able to discover all the key information in regards to apprenticeships with experts from MK College on hand to answer queries and provide support.
In addition, interactive demonstrations of apprenticeships in sport, business, engineering and hairdressing will help to bring the experience to life with current learners on hand to answer any
questions that you might have.
Adding some fun and games for the event, MK College’s zone will be hosting Matchmakers – a game show that will be matching apprentices to employers through a series of questions and tasks.
MK College’s Director of Apprenticeships, Tracey Matthews, said: “It’s a great opportunity for the college to be involved in the National Apprenticeship Show in this way.
“Apprenticeships are a brilliant way for students to make a start on a career at the earliest opportunity and continue to develop their education at the same time – and if you factor in the
benefits for employers, such as being able to develop staff in exactly the way they require with the skills needed for their industry, it’s a genuine win-win situation.
“Thanks to the national political support for apprenticeships, this is a real growth area for the College and we’re excited to be able to demonstrate our commitment to the development and
growth of the sector.”
