The Employment and Skills Service at North Tyneside Council is once again organising the annual “Get up and Go – Apprenticeship Fair” as a key activity to coincide with National Apprenticeship week 2019.
“Get Up and Go” will take place on
Saturday 9th March 2019: 10.30am to 1.30pm
The event has proved popular with young people and their parents as they can meet employers and support organisations which are looking to recruit both apprentices and trainees face to face in a central location.
Employment and Skills are particularly interested this year in attracting businesses offering higher level apprentices.
Historically 400+ young people and their parents have attended on the day with high levels of positive feedback received; for example in 2018
• Over 75% of exhibitors marked effectiveness for engaging as excellent
• 99% of parents received the information they wanted
• 100% of young people found the event to be helpful or very helpful for them
• 99% of attendees approved of the venue
As in previous years the event will be an exhibition format with no cost to attend other than committing staff time to the entirety of the event.
The success of the day very much relies on the continued support of employers, apprenticeship providers and organisations who work to create opportunities for young people. To confirm attendance, or find out more information please contact
