ApprenticeshipApprenticeship Fair draws in eager learners

Apprenticeship Fair draws in eager learners

Hundreds of young people came together to learn more about apprenticeship opportunities at a fair yesterday.

The Manchester Airport-backed event, hosted by Wythenshawe and Sale East MP Mike Kane, brought together some eager learners and exciting employers at Wythenshawe Forum.

Prospective apprentices heard about the opportunity to do placements at event sponsors
Manchester Airport and Timpson as well as Bethell Construction, SSP, the Manchester United Foundation, Amazon and others.

The event was jointly organised with business charity BW3, which was founded more than 20 years ago to connect companies wanting to support the economic and social wellbeing of Wythenshawe.

Manchester Airport talked to people at the event about the range of apprenticeships it runs, including in corporate social responsibility and engineering.

MP Mike Kane said: “Taking the first steps on your career – or even changing direction when
you’ve already started out – can be really daunting. But here in Wythenshawe and the surrounding area we’re lucky to have a whole range of employers offering innovative apprenticeships.

“That’s why I take great pride in hosting this annual apprenticeship fair in partnership with Manchester City Council and BW3 – because it brings these organisations and the people who could benefit from the opportunities they offer together.

“So whether you’re an aspiring engineer who wants to work at one of the country’s biggest airports here in Manchester or you want to learn about the business of football through the Manchester United Foundation, you can find the right Apprenticeship for you.

“I’m grateful to Manchester Airport and Timson for helping make this event a success, and to all the exhibitors and people who attended today.”

Adam Jupp, Manchester Airport communications director and chair of BW3 said: “We’re really proud to serve the people of Manchester and the North – but that goes far beyond helping them travel.

“Manchester Airport is one of the region’s biggest and most exciting employers – and we want to make sure people in the area are able to benefit from having the airport and all the opportunities it offers on their doorstep. We met lots of young people at the fair, and knowing that we could be about
to help them take the first steps on a rewarding career is very exciting.”
