Everything you ever wanted to know about Apprenticeships but were afraid to ask.

  • Do you have plans to grow your business?
  • Do you have an aging work force?
  • Do you find it hard to find the talented people your business needs to thrive?
  • Would you like to meet other Engineering and Manufacturing companies in the same boat?

Everything you ever wanted to know about Apprenticeships but were afraid to ask!

This event, specifically for engineering and manufacturing businesses that aren’t currently involved with Apprenticeships and is brought to you by Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Christchurch and East Dorset District Council and leading manufacturer Superior with Aish Technologies speaking. You’ll have the opportunity to find out how Apprenticeships can really benefit your business and you’ll see some great examples of the real impact of an Apprenticeship programme.
