MPI UK & Ireland have announced that Stagestruck Limited have been awarded a £2,500 grant to support the training of their events assistant apprentice in 2018.
The apprenticeship support scheme provides a grant of up to £2,500 to an event industry business who has employed an apprentice through the new Government-backed Events Assistant Trailblazer standard. The application process was announced at International Confex earlier this year and has received positive interst from industry employers.
The scheme is backed by the MPI Foundation and the grant is made using funds raised at The Meeting Show Post Event Party held in June 2017. The grant includes funding for external training from an accredited provider, annual MPI membership for the apprentice and their mentor, plus registration costs and expenses towards attendance at MPI UK & Ireland’s educational events for one year.
Fundraising for the 2019 apprenticeship grant will continue at the MPI Foundation Cocktails for Charity event, hosted at The Meeting Show 2018. The event takes place in Olympia London’s Pillar Hall from 5.30pm-8pm on Wednesday 27 June.
