Attracting talent into the industry and developing ongoing programmes to keep people in the industry is one of the toughest challenges facing printers today. So this is a platform which addresses the problem of attracting young talent into the industry. It will:
► Showcase the world of print and demonstrate that it is an exciting industry with a wealth of career opportunities
► Provide a forum for businesses to learn about apprenticeship/ training programmes and how training programmes can be managed
► Share the journey that apprentices have made in the print industry to students
The Future Skills Zone comprises an informal presentation area to host sessions on subjects like training, recruitment, and the apprenticeship levy. There will also be presentations from apprentices for students from schools and universities.
Presentations will be made by BPIF, Brief Cases, The Printing Charity, and Print iT among others.
