Where are all the apprenticeships?

It has long been understood that event management isn’t all about how much you can remember from a text book, but a ‘can do’ attitude’ and an ability to get things done.

I’m surprised therefore that the sector does not seem to have embraced apprenticeships more widely as they offer great career pathways for youngsters who want to get into the industry as well as for firms to develop outstanding employees.

With degree level schemes now in operation it’s an ideal time for businesses to get involved and develop the leaders of tomorrow, but I’m not convinced the sector has fully grasped the opportunity as much as others.
