WES ‘EngTech Ready’ Apprentice Conference 2018
Saturday 20 October 2018, 9.00 - 16.30

Venue: EEF Technology Hub, Birmingham


Open to: Female engineering apprentices aged 18 and above

Engineering and construction can be challenging environments in which to train and work, and only 3% of apprentices in these fields are female. Thanks to funding from Arconic, the first-ever WES Apprentice Conference will take place on Saturday 20 October 2018, kindly hosted by EEF at their Training Hub in Aston, Birmingham.

Speakers from EEF, Engineering Council, SEMTA and other key professional organisations will be providing a dynamic mix of hands-on, interactive teamwork sessions along with advice on building your career and profile – and we’ll hear from inspirational women engineers who started their careers as apprentices.

  • Gain confidence and networking skills by meeting apprentices from other companies and sectors
  • Improve your leadership, personal and workplace skills through interactive and hands-on teamwork challenge sessions
  • Learn more about the transition from training to full employment and how to develop your career
  • Hear directly from and meet face-to-face with inspiring women in engineering roles, especially those who started their careers as apprentices

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. WES can also provide a contribution of up to £50 to cover travel expenses.
