Event Apprenticeships Update


The EIF (Events Industry Forum, a not-for-profit organisation) has made a substantial funding contribution to https://lnkd.in/eDbVDXvG to help it develop and promote apprenticeships to the UK events industry.

The funding will support the programmes aim to help companies understand the value and processes associated with employing apprentices, to promote event apprenticeships to the wider community, and to enable people from all backgrounds and ages gain experience and relevant professional qualifications within the events industry.

Richard Waddington, on behalf of Events Apprenticeships said: “We’re extremely grateful for the support and commitment EIF are showing us, along with our many other industry partners.  Our industry is facing a massive challenge in both recruiting, developing and retaining talent within our sector. With the industry now starting to work together to develop apprenticeships, they will become a well needed route into driving greater diversity and inclusion.”

Steve Heap Chair of EIF said: “Richard presented the vision for Events Apprenticeships to the Board and all the hard work the EAAB (events apprenticeships advisory board) have done to date, which is phenomenal for a group of volunteers – apprenticeships and awareness of them is paramount for the future of our industry – we all need to get out there and bang the drum to drive this forward. EIF are extremely proud to be supporting this industry initiative and working with them to take it forward.”

There is still alot more to be done and support from other parts of the industry is still needed, but this is a wonderful indication of what is in store for Events Apprenticeships
