Did you know that this week is National Apprenticeship Week? Yes, that’s right – from 6th-12th February the government is bringing the apprenticeship community together to celebrate the various schemes available across the UK. This week is an opportunity for employers and organisations to showcase their apprenticeships and why they’re a worthwhile career path.
The theme for this year’s National Apprenticeship Week is ‘skills for life’. This offers an opportunity to reflect on how the right apprenticeship can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career. Not only this, but it promotes how apprenticeship schemes are a way for businesses to nurture a skilful home-grown workforce.
Why are apprenticeships so valuable?
Everyone learns differently, and apprenticeships are great for those who learn best from hands-on training! They provide an opportunity for individuals to receive sponsorship for their qualifications, whilst learning on the job. Apprenticeships can be offered at multiple levels, particularly school leavers and university graduates.
