Focus on Apprentices

This year there will be a focus on the role of apprentices which is a key component of IHEEM President Pete Sellars' 'Five Key Themes' for the future of the Institute. Our apprentices of today are our leaders of tomorrow and in recognition of this, we have created a new dedicated apprentices' theatre 'Apprentice Today, Leaders Tomorrow' on the exhibition floor and we are encouraging apprentices to attend this with the support of industry partners.
