Barnfield College, Keir, Volker Fitzpatrick, Royal Air Force, Bedfordshire Police, Nova Training, Vauxhall, TUI, PWC, Benedict Hairdressing and Beauty and Skills Rocket will be among the exhibitors.

Laura Church, corporate director for place and infrastructure, said: “Apprenticeships are a really good opportunity to learn while you earn and completing a training programme can really improve your career prospects.

"With four equivalent educational levels of apprenticeship on offer - from intermediary to degree level - there are many future career possibilities for those considering this route.

“We have some big employers in Luton, including the council and those taking on apprentices are very committed to not only seeing them through the actual process, but also offering them training and opportunities well beyond.”
