The showcase, which rounded off National Apprenticeship Week in the city, involved Kawasaki Precision Machinery and global medical technology company BD promoting 12 apprenticeship jobs for young people.
Cornwall College Business hosted the event at The Business Space, in Mayflower Street, where potential apprentices could meet managers, current apprentices and college tutors – and apply for job vacancies.
