National Apprenticeship Week launches today, 08 February 2021, and aims to shine a light on the amazing work being done by employers and apprentices across the country.
As a result of the pandemic, National Apprenticeship Week 2021 is a bit different this year, but just as exciting. During this week-long celebration we will be highlighting some of the benefits of apprenticeships and celebrating the motivating stories of how apprentices have helped business adapt and build during a difficult year.
What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship combines practical training in a job with study. Apprenticeships are recognised as the leading standard for work-based training and there are lots of benefits for doing an apprenticeship or employing one. You can find out more about apprenticeships and check current vacancies on our apprenticeships page.
