3 to 9 February 2020 is National Apprenticeship Week. Employers across the U.K will be hosting events such as workplace tours, Q&A Sessions, presentations and parent panels for apprentices and parents.
National Apprentice Week is an annual celebration and a time to recognise and applaud apprentice success stories from across the U.K.
After the success of the week in 2019 Anne Milton, Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills, said:
“I am thrilled that National Apprenticeship Week 2020 will take place during early February 2020. It’s a chance to celebrate apprentices and the brilliant work being done by schools, the FE sector and employers across the country to promote the huge benefits of apprenticeships.
“Apprenticeships offer people of all ages and backgrounds a high-quality route to skilled employment with the option to train at every level in a range of exciting professions like aerospace engineering, data science, teaching, law, nursing, and fashion.
“This year, we had over 1250 events and 1900 articles and features in publications from the Financial Times to Cosmopolitan. I would encourage employers, training providers, schools, apprentices and our ambassador networks to start considering how they will get involved in National Apprenticeship Week 2020. We want next year to be even bigger and better reaching even more people and employers, so they understand the advantages apprenticeships bring”.
