At Clifford Holroyde we have a Careers Programme in place that ensures that you are well equipped for the future and have the information you need to make realistic and informed decisions about further education, training and employment. 

When you leave school at 16, you are likely to have some or all of the following options available to you depending on your independence and support needs:

Further education at a college or training provider to follow a study programme.

Apprenticeship – An apprenticeship is a way to gain the skills, knowledge and experience you need to get into many careers. They combine work, training and study, letting you ‘earn while you learn’. Apprenticeships are available across a range of areas. Further information can be found here.

Traineeship – Usually a 6 month programme made up of extended work experience working towards qualifications. A traineeship will normally lead to an apprenticeship or work. Further information.

Supported Internship – Supported Internships are a study programme for learners with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs). Learners will have a work placement and complete relevant qualifications alongside their placement. More information about Liverpool’s Supported Internship programme.

Welcome to The National Apprenticeship Shows

The National Apprenticeship Shows exist only to promote Apprenticeships and our message is clear – Apprenticeships work for both candidates and employers alike!


These FREE to attend events showcase all levels of Apprenticeships, from entry level all the way through to Higher and Degree. This offers visitors the opportunity to engage with each region’s top Employers, Colleges, Universities, and Training Providers in a face-to-face, interactive environment.

The National Apprenticeship Shows are the perfect opportunity for School and College leavers, as well as young adults, parents and carers, to discover more about Apprenticeships across the seven regions we cover in England.

If you’re a teacher from a School or College looking to bring a group of students, head to the ‘Group Registration‘ tab to book your group.

If you’re an individual wanting to attend, head to the ‘Register‘ tab to book.

These events reach more School and College leavers, parents, carers and individuals than any other event of its kind, so if you’re an Employer or Provider looking to promote your Apprenticeship offering and recruit for your programmes, why not exhibit at one or more of our events?

If you have any questions about visiting or exhibiting, do get in touch with the team on or 0203 858 7000.
