We are pleased to present the Association of Apprentices' Latest Insight Report - Q3, 2023.

01 August 2023

Thank you for coming the the BIGGEST event of its kind. 

Networking at the #BIGApprenticeMeetUp goes beyond exchanging business cards and small talk. It offers a unique opportunity for apprentices to connect with individuals who share their passion for apprenticeship programs and skill development. These connections can lead to collaborations on projects, partnerships, and even friendships. The #BIGApprenticeMeetUp creates an environment that fosters genuine connections, allowing apprentices to build relationships that extend beyond the event itself.

We hope you enjoy the photos below.
