About the show

Against the backdrop of a very tough year, there has never been a better time for people to re-evaluate and take control of their futures, with many considering major life changes, a career move or wanting to take on a new challenge. For employers, supporting employees to undertake personal and professional development not only increases engagement and productivity within the workforce, but is beneficial to the business.


The government is investing more money into post-18 education and training to help support the economy. This includes offering free college courses, more apprenticeship opportunities and higher education loans becoming more flexible. Whether you’re looking for a complete career change, an employee looking to learn new skills or an employer looking to support your workforce, The Retrain Expo has all the resources you need.
