National Apprenticeship Week 2022: Build the Future

2nd February, 2022 Read time: Two minutes

We’re joining the thousands of businesses across the country in celebrating National Apprenticeship Week.

Apprenticeships are a great way to build the future for both the people who complete them and the businesses they work within. And, this week we’ll be showing just how impactful that can be. 

Ask an Employer

Throughout the week, we’re holding free “Ask an Employer” sessions online where you can ask anything you’d like to know about apprenticeships.  Click the event title to book your place.

If you’re following our social media channels, this week you’ll see a packed line-up including: 

  • Ask an Employer:  On Tuesday you’ll have the chance to ask any questions about employing an apprentice across our social channels.
  • Ask an Apprentice:  On Wednesday, a local apprentice will be on our social channels to answer any questions you may have and sharing their experience.
  • Thankyou Thursday:  Throughout the day we’ll be shouting out the employers we work with and thanking them for all of their hard work and dedication, providing apprentices with a safe and fulfilling place to work and learn. 
  • Celebration Friday:  Join us in reliving some of our apprenticeship successes!
