The UCLan Spark apprenticeship marketplace events will take place on Wedneday June 29, Thursday June 30, and Tuesday July 5, focusing on engineering, construction, business and digital sectors.
Businesses will meet several potential future degree apprentices on a one-to-one basis during a two-hour speed pitching session, where they can award opportunities to those who impress them.

In addition, attendees will hear from keynote speakers and take part in a question and answer session with an industry panel.
Martin Blunt, Head of the UCLan Enterprise Engagement Unit, said: “We are looking forward to holding this Spark event again for the first time since the pandemic.
“It is so important that our future apprentices understand the pace of change within the sector they want to work in, and the best career opportunities open to them. These day-long sessions provide the perfect opportunity to do just that.
“Employers will not only be matched with talented people but also learn more about how they can benefit from the Lancashire Levy Transfer Network.”
Each event runs from 9.30am–3.00pm and employers and future apprentices are required to register for the event via Eventbrite, although the employer list has now closed:
