The first National Apprenticeship Show has been praised by MK North MP Mark Lancaster.
The defence minister was there to see first-hand the huge influx of students, teachers and parents who met with companies showcasing the variety of apprenticeships on offer.
At the show opening yesterday, Mr Lancaster said: “With the endorsement that MK has one of the fastest growing economies in the UK, it’s only right that we encourage further growth and demonstrate that the future has a wealth of opportunities for our young people.”
It was an impressive start to the two day event at arena:mk with 3,000 schools were invited to share in the wealth of opportunities available.
More than 16,000 young people are expected to visit during the two-day event which ends tonight.
It was officially opened by the Prime Minister’s apprenticeship adviser Nadhim Zahawi MP who said the enthusiasm in the room was “infectious”.
