Hosted by Ignite Sport UK General Manager Hannah Bladen, the open event will take place on Wednesday, February 24, via Zoom to guarantee compliance with the Government’s current COVID restrictions.

The evening will provide year 11 leavers upwards and their parents or carers the opportunity to learn more about Ignite Sport UK’s sports-based apprenticeships and the career pathways they provide.
