National Apprenticeship Week 2020

3rd February 2020

This week (3 - 9 February 2020) is National Apprenticeship Week, an annual celebration of apprenticeships which brings the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy.

Apprenticeships are a great path for people at any stage of their career, whether they’re starting out, re-entering the workforce or just wanting to reskill or change careers. We want to change the perceptions people have on what an apprenticeship is and who takes them up to encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to take up an apprenticeship. You can find out what we’ll be doing to raise awareness of the great impact apprenticeships have on individuals and communities below.

Meet the apprentice!

Who better to tell you what it’s like to be an apprentice than our apprentices themselves! Each day this week one of our apprentices will be featuring in our Meet the apprentice blog - head over to the apprentice section to find out more.
