Bucks Skills Hub – Live Interviews with Current Apprentices

We are very excited to announce the apprentice panel line up for our National Apprenticeship 2024 (#NAW24) webinars, taking place next week. The apprentices are keen to share their career journeys so far, and what they have enjoyed most about choosing to become an apprentice.

The apprentices represent a wide range of businesses and levels of study. Businesses represented include Softcat plc, Cisco, the Digital Manufacturing Centre, Zenopa, All Spring Media, Amazon Prime, Sumitomo Demag, Saffery and Redrow plc.
