About this event
We are delighted that the Economy Minister, Gordon Lyons MLA is joining the next Workplus Employer Forum.
Only 12% of employers in NI hire apprentices. We want to address that by changing how our culture views apprenticeships.
We are passionate about what apprenticeships can do for our society and economy and we want to make it easier for employers to use apprenticeships as a talent pathway and help aspiring apprentices to connect with opportunities.
This event is our last before our August apprentice recruitment campaign. To find out more about our August campaign visit www.workplus.app/hire
