Mark Mckenna Managing Director, Mindful Education

The Annual Apprenticeship Conference is a key date in the calendar for Mindful Education. It provides us with a great opportunity to catch up with our partners, meet employers, connect with awarding organisations, and get the latest updates about what is happening within the industry. It’s also great to hear from apprentices in talks and presentations and to have the opportunity to chat to them over the course of the event.

Jenny Hogg Head of Business Marketing, Tribal

We consider this to be the key event in the annual calendar for people delivering apprenticeships. Having exhibited for several years now, we’ve always experienced a great buzz in the exhibition hall with a steady stream of delegates to our stand wanting to find out how we can help them deliver quality apprenticeships.

Tom Hughes Senior Brand Officer, Skills and Education Group

Being an exhibitor at the Annual Apprenticeship Conference and a sponsor of the gala dinner last year was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our subsidiary organisation, BIIAB Qualifications Ltd. There was a great buzz as many people reunited post-covid, and the dinner was a wonderful celebration! We made new contacts, heard from insightful keynote speakers, and had fun. We look forward to coming again in 2023.

Robert Herriot Marketing & Implementation Manager, ACE360

ACE360 proudly supported the AAC conference in 2022. It gave us an opportunity to meet many of our clients and friends of the industry face to face. ACE360 works with over 1,100 organisations, and the AAC gave us the ability to connect with many of these customers, while learning from industry experts and inspirational leaders. The team at AAC were very accommodating and supportive, ensuring we got the most out of our sponsorship, adding value at every request. Glad we could be a part of the AAC 2022.

Katy Chesters Apprenticeship Business Development Manager, Staffordshire University

As an exhibitor at AAC 2022, we found the whole conference to be well organised with it being easy to set up as a stand holder on the day. We found that the conference gave us great exposure to the wider sector as a University delivering higher and degree apprenticeships. The plenaries covered some key and interesting topics and the wide range of speakers from different backgrounds and experiences added to the value of talks, whilst the workshops were well organised and covered a range of topics that were insightful for our team.

Carol Smith eSignUp Product Manager, VLE Support Ltd

Although I’ve attended before as a delegate, it was the first time we’d visited AAC as an exhibitor. The event was very well organised and had a friendly, relaxed vibe. We caught up with current clients and met new ones, thoroughly enjoying ourselves while getting the work done. It was a perfect place to launch our new product eSignUp!

Isla Lightfoot Chief Marketing Officer, Aptem

We highly value this event. It is an excellent opportunity to meet with customers and potential customers and understand their opportunities and challenges. The plenary sessions are informative and it’s extremely well organised.
