Many stands are already booked, and organisers are expecting around 1000 people to attend on the day.
Dave Barr, thebestof Exeter’s MD said “We have a full programme of events planned for the day including some great seminars which are being run by our headline sponsors Petroc and media partners Radio Exe, The Express and Echo and Devon Life. There will also be a chance to learn all about Auto Enrolment too.”
Each week in the run up to the Expo we will be bringing you the latest news on the event and the sponsors.
At Petroc there are more opportunities than ever for employers wishing to take on an apprentice, thanks to the new Future Technologies Centre and exciting curriculum developments at the college’s Mid Devon Campus.
The new Centre will increase engagement with local employers and give them, their employees and apprentices access to the training that is needed to keep up with the fast-paced, ever-changing construction industry.
“This facility gives the opportunity to explore new apprenticeship frameworks and work with local employers to meet the needs of the local economy. We are open to ideas when it comes to our apprenticeship provision and are working with employers to expand and develop our provision,” explained head of apprenticeships, Mark Challacombe.
As well as the apprenticeships on offer in the Future Technologies Centre, Petroc is also constantly expanding and reviewing its entire apprenticeship provision, and now offers frameworks in accounting, creative and digital media, retail and management.
Those considering an apprenticeship, or employers interested in finding out more about how an apprentice can enhance their business, are invited to call 01884 235330 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
AS well as the full programme of seminars on the day, there will alos be cookery demonstrations with top local chefs in the Expo Kitchen, plus speed networking and a number of technical demo sessions.
Stands are still available in a range of sizes and there is a special area for new start up businesses which have been trading for less than twelve months. These stands are deliberately low priced to encourage new businesses to take part.
