A group of QEGS Year 11 pupils were accompanied by Mr Taylor and Ms Ash to the National Apprenticeship Show, at Bolton Arena. The trip was arranged for those pupils who have previously shown an interest in starting an apprenticeship after their GCSEs.

A large range of local and national employers attended the event including BAE, Rolls Royce, BMW, NHS, Armed Services and many smaller apprenticeship providers. Pupils browsed the stalls and attended seminars across the day, with some taking part in individual meetings that the show provided.
