What is National Apprenticeship Week?
National Apprenticeship Week: what you need to know
National Apprenticeship Week 2017 is co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service and this year holds the 10th Anniversary of National Apprenticeship Week. From the 6th March to the 10th March, this week will bring together employers and apprentices from across England to celebrate the success of apprenticeships over the last decade. The main aim is to raise awareness and encourage even more people to choose apprenticeships as a fast-track to a great career.
Each year, a theme is chosen with last year’s focusing on the fact ‘an apprenticeship can take you anywhere’ and 2015 asking ‘how much we really know about apprenticeships.’ This year’s theme ‘Ladder of Opportunity’ is to encourage employers to take on apprentices and individuals to choose an apprenticeship as a ladder of opportunity to a great career.
Apprenticeships and Skills Minister Robert Halfon said:
“National Apprenticeship Week is about celebrating the best in apprenticeships and traineeships. The week highlights the vital role apprenticeships and traineeships play in giving people from all backgrounds a ladder of opportunity.”
“Last year’s National Apprenticeship Week saw some amazing achievements, but I want 2017 to be the best yet. I look forward to meeting apprentices and businesses throughout the week and showcasing the great work they do.”
