Posters, phone cases, books, magazines, so much of what you interact with is printed!
Within the printing industry there are many pathways you can take whether you are interested in hands on manufacturing, design, technology, data, customer service or business management.

Apprentice Futures Live

Apprentice Futures Live will be a central part of the City of London Careers Festival every year. In 2021 our event will be on the 30 June and 1 July. We will be hosting several employers (virtually) over the two days who will talk about their business, their apprenticeship programmes and what they are looking for. Several of the sessions will have apprentices talking about their jobs, their experiences and sharing what a typical day looks like.
