Emirates Stadium, London
25th February 2016
Youth Employment UK is delighted to be hosting the Apprenticeship Debate as part of the 4th Apprenticeship 4 England Conference.
The government has set an ambitious target of creating 3 million apprenticeships during this parliament. But, are young people ready for these apprenticeships? Youth Employment UK is an organisation that puts the voices of young people at the centre of the youth employment landscape and there has never been a more important time to ensure young people have their voices heard on the topic of apprenticeships.
Our debate will ask the BIG questions of a panel of experts and importantly put the questions back to our youth audience.
- Why is the apprenticeship agenda so important?
- Do young people want and value apprenticeship?
- Do employers really value apprenticeships, will they ever become more important to employers than a degree?
- What would make a great apprenticeship?
- Is this government doing enough to get it right? What do they need to do more of or less of?
The debate will be chaired by Ashley Porter-Exley & Joshua Uwadiae
The panel will include: Chloe Smith MP (Chair for the APPG for Youth Employment), Will Akerman Managing Director of My Kind of Future, Phil Warnock Managing Director of Nutmeg Media, Fraser Ingham Director of Skillsfirst, Lauren Mistry Employer Lead at Plotr, Rhiannon Wilson Social Media Apprentice at Youth Employment UK.
The audience will be: Young people from education, employment or training environments who are thinking about their career pathways or are already on their journeys and have some BIG questions about apprenticeships.
