The value and achievements of apprenticeships will be celebrated throughout National Apprenticeship Week – set to take place from Monday 6 to Sunday 12 February 2023.
National Apprenticeship Week, an annual celebration now in its 16th year, will this year focus on the theme of ‘Skills for Life’. Apprenticeships are particularly important in the current economic climate, as the UK faces a shortage of skilled workers in many industries. Apprenticeships provide a solution to this problem, by equipping young people with the skills and experience they need to succeed in the modern workforce. They also provide businesses with a cost-effective way to develop their workforce and ensure they have the skills they need to compete in the global economy.
Apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career and help businesses to develop a talented workforce that is equipped with skills for the future.
National Apprenticeship Week is an opportunity for businesses, schools, and colleges to showcase the benefits of apprenticeships and inspire young people to consider them as a career path. The week brings together businesses and apprentices across the country to shine a light on the positive impact that apprenticeships make to individuals, businesses and the wider economy.
The National Apprenticeship Week website has more information and a toolkit to help you plan and promote your activities.
