In recent years, the Stationers’ Company has initiated an annual Apprentice event. The objective is to raise awareness of apprenticeship opportunities and to link young people from across greater London with potential employers.

Last year Apprentice 19 was held in the City of London’s Guildhall in association with the City of London Corporation. It was a great success with over 60 participating Companies (potential employers and providers) and 2,500 - 3000 students from across Greater London.

This year Apprentice 20 will again be in the Guildhall and will be on 29 and 30 June 2020. The Stationers’ Company,

There is no cost beyond staffing your stand and providing engaging materials..

The hours will be 10.00 am - 3.30 pm and you can set up on Sunday evening or from 7.00 am on Monday morning. Apprentice 20 is aimed at years 10,11,12 and 13 although the 29th June will be post 16 only.

James Duckenfield, CEO, Hobs 3-D, said: ‘It was a great pleasure to be part of this amazing event and so pleased to see how many students were present.’ 

Anne Ashworth, Pearson Plc, said: ‘Apprentice 19 was a fantastic event! Students were very engaged and interested in learning more about apprenticeships in professional services. It was great to see enthusiasm from all year groups.’

Katherine Holdstock, PwC Student Recruitment Manager added: 'Apprentice 19 was very informative, as I was able to speak to a variety of people from different industries. I had previously not thought about a career in the printing industry, however, after seeing the vast range of jobs in the sector from design to engineering, I am now going to explore career options in print. Thank you for a wonderful experience.'
