Apprenticeship.scot website has a form for employers to register any events they plan to take place during the campaign.

Falkirk’s Developing the Young Workforce group, which helps bring business and education together, is supporting the event by urging local organisations to participate.

Jen Henderson, DYW Forth Valley Programme Manager, said: “Apprenticeships are an important career pathway for young people. We are looking forward to working with employers and education across Forth Valley to highlight and showcase the apprenticeship opportunities they offer and the careers these can lead to.’
