In support of National Apprenticeship Week 2022, FSB are delighted to be hosting a virtual session with the North East Apprenticeship Ambassadors Network, where we will help you learn more about apprenticeships for small business.

At this session, attendees will hear from 3 small business owners on how and why apprenticeships helped them, what challenges they faced in the process, and what benefit apprentices provide for small businesses.

Attendees will hear from Claire Atkins at Sintons Solicitors LLP, Jackie Petford at Alpek Polyester and Michael Janes from 1600 Systems about their experience. You will also have a chance to pose your questions to our speakers and other business owners in the virtual room in a supportive and engaging discussion.

The event is free-to-attend, and open to both members and non-members.

We look forward to welcoming you.
