We are celebrating National Apprenticeship Week 2018 by hosting our annual Inspiration event.

Inspiration 2018 is a fantastic opportunity for students to participate in a full day of competitions in various curriculum areas from construction (all areas), marketing, web design, ICT, Business Studies and more. This is a great chance for students to showcase their skills and abilities in front of industry experts.

Competitions will be judged by representatives from leading companies and all competition winners will receive a certificate.
