BPIF to host virtual apprenticeship event

The British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) is to host a special virtual event to highlight the benefits an apprentice can offer to businesses in the printing industry.

The event will be open to both employers and apprentices

Taking place on February 9th, the event will run during National Apprenticeship Week, with employers invited to attend to learn more about how they can support and bring apprentices on board, as well as how apprentices can get involved with print.

Divided up as a dual conference, the day will include how to get the most out of the apprenticeship levy, plans for jobs and information on how to recruit an apprentice, and ways to offer support for staff wellbeing.

For apprentices, an ‘Intro to Print’ taster session workshop will offer them an insight into the industry, while there will also be a talk on wellbeing.

After the dual sessions there will be an opportunity for all attendees to come together and virtually network with each other.

“Our industry has a great tradition of investing in developing apprentices to ensure we have the right people with the right skills and attitudes to join and then progress their careers in the sector,” BPIF chief executive Charles Jarrold says.

“Our National Apprentice Week conference represents a fantastic opportunity for us to show the strength of our sector, the depth and quality of the apprenticeship routes available, and to hear success stories from some who've completed an apprenticeship earlier in their careers. It’s always an inspiring event.”
