19.08.2019 - National Apprenticeship Week 2020 has been announced

The next National Apprenticeship Week will be held 3 to 7 February 2020. The earlier date allows apprenticeships to lead the careers conversation, which is particularly useful for young people deliberating their career choices at this crucial time of year as well as a great opportunity to promote the programmes available. 

Our apprenticeship week event planner is up and running and we are looking forward to booking in events to help promote apprenticeships.

 

27.03.19 - We are moving to new offices today. 

Our new address is Unit 2 Brook Business Centre, Cowley Mill Road, Uxbridge, Middlesex, UB8 2FX

17-01-19 The new #FireItUp Apprenticeship Campaign has been launched showing the positive impact that apprenticeships have on both individuals and their employers.  

The campaign includes Sarah's story. Sarah was looking to change career and an apprenticeship provided this opportunity. Sarah was employed on an apprenticeship at Cromer Hospital in Norfolk and Annie, a Career Development Coordinator who employed Sarah provides an insight as to the benefits of apprenticeship to both the apprentice and their employer.

13-12-18 The theme for National Apprenticeship Week March 4th - 8th 2019 has been revealed - BLAZING A TRAIL

Apprenticeships and Skills Minister Anne Milton said:

Blazing a trail is what being an apprentice is all about and will be our theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2019. Because that’s what’s happening up and down the country – apprentices and employers blazing a trail.

I want everyone to recognise the change that apprenticeships can bring - for employers blazing a trail to new markets, apprentices to new career opportunities and for colleges and training providers raising the skills levels for everyone.

 

We are planning a packed National Apprenticeship Week, attending and exhibiting at events with our employers and partners all over the south of England.

If you would like us to support your event, please get in touch with us.
