What are Taster Time sessions?

Taster Time sessions are free to attend and are held to coincide with the Generation Apprenticeship competition from March to May. Taster sessions may be during the day or evening, and will generally be for between 1-3 hours.  The aim of a Taster Time session is to showcase apprenticeships and industries available through apprenticeship to potential recruits, their families, friends and teachers.

Taster Sessions will be delivered by Generation Apprenticeship Teams, businesses and training organisations sharing key insights that help create more value in the choices around apprenticeship.
