National Apprenticeship Week is coming!

We’re straight in to the New Year with a bang this year! National Apprenticeship Week is this year is being held a month earlier than it traditionally is! Monday 3rd – Friday 7th February will be the 13th annual National Apprenticeship Week #NAW2020

This year’s theme for the week is *Look Beyond*, this theme will celebrate the diversity and value that apprenticeships bring to employers, apprentices and communities across England today. From highlighting the breadth of industries and roles available to the talent and energy apprentices bring into the workplace.

National Apprenticeship Week is a flagship moment in the calendar year for supporters and ambassadors of apprenticeships, uniting them and delivering consistent messages with strong collective impact. ‘Look Beyond’ will serve as a rallying cry for the apprenticeship community to showcase the true meaning of diversity within apprenticeships, including:

  • Calling on young people to look beyond traditional routes into employment and explore the diversity of career options and industries now available to them through apprenticeships;
  • Calling on employers to look beyond traditional hiring routes and shout about the value they already see from diversifying their workforce by employing apprentices
  • Calling on parents and teachers to look beyond old preconceptions around apprenticeships, building understanding of the true value they bring, and sharing this with young people.
