Manchester Metropolitan University is holding an event to help young people find out how to get hired for Degree Apprenticeships and Higher Apprenticeships.

The event – on Tuesday 28 June – will gather the university’s employer partners and existing apprentices to explain how young people can combine funded university study with paid work to accelerate careers in law, science, digital technology and management.

The event will present Degree Apprenticeship programmes in Digital & Technology Solutions (IT), Chartered Management, and Chemical Science, together with Higher and Advanced Apprenticeships in Legal Services, starting this autumn.

During the evening, employer partners will showcase current apprentice vacancies and explain what they're looking for from applicants. Atttendees will also have a chance to talk informally with current apprentices on Manchester Met programmes. 

Employer partners include Barclays, Lloyds Bank, Thales UK, AstraZeneca, Pizza Hut, Network Rail, The Department for Work and Pensions, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Reality Mine, and BMC Health, together with leading legal firms SAS Daniels LLP, Horwich Farrelly, Stephensons and Napthens.

Liz Gorb, Manchester Met's Director of Apprenticeships said: "Young people who are torn between going to university and working, no longer have to choose. This opportunity is available to school and college leavers and existing employees working for our partner organisations. There's no age limit on being an apprentice.

"We've developed the trailblazer apprenticeships in partnership with regional employers, the Tech Partnership and the Chartered Management Institute. They're designed to meet skills gaps in the UK job market. Businesses also benefit from the opportunity to mould their own employees, instilling in them exactly the right skills and workplace cultures."
