The BPIF will host a virtual event on apprenticeships on the morning of 9 February.
There will be two sessions - one for employers to understand more about how they can support and bring apprentices on board, the other aimed at current and potential apprentices to hear about the experiences of others.
For employers, the day will include how to get the most out of the apprenticeship levy, plans for jobs and information on how to recruit an apprentice, and ways to offer support for staff wellbeing with Sophie Kirby from The Printing Charity.
For apprentices, there will be an opportunity to experience an ‘Intro to Print’ workshop, giving an insight into how courses are run. Plus apprentices will share their journeys and talk on wellbeing.
After the dual sessions there will be an opportunity for all attendees to come together and virtually network.
BPIF CEO Charles Jarrold said: “Our industry has a great tradition of investing in developing apprentices to ensure we have the right people with the right skills and attitudes to join and then progress their careers in the sector. Our National Apprentice Week conference represents a fantastic opportunity for us to show the strength of our sector, the depth and quality of the apprenticeship routes available, and to hear success stories from some who've completed an apprenticeship earlier in their careers. It’s always an inspiring event!”
