National Apprenticeship Week 2022
Join us this National Apprenticeship Week (7th-13th February) for a week-long celebration of everything to do with apprenticeships.
National Apprenticeship Week is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the many benefits that apprenticeships bring to employers, individuals, and the wider economy.
The theme this year is ‘Build the Future’, looking at how apprenticeships help people develop their skills and knowledge to earn a successful career and how they help businesses to build a talented workforce that is trained with skills ready for the future of their company. The week brings corporations and apprentices throughout the nation to bring a spotlight to the effective impact that apprenticeships have been making on individuals, corporations, and the broader economic system.

Deciding what to do after school can be a tough decision…
Do you go to university and gain a degree or get an apprenticeship whilst earning money along the way? Study full time for at least another 3 years or jump straight into the working world?
Degree Apprenticeships are equivalent to bachelors (or at Level 7, masters). Higher apprenticeships go from level 4 to 7 and are equivalent to a foundation degree and above. Degree apprenticeships are available at levels 6 and 7 and are equivalent to full bachelors and masters.

This week is National Apprenticeship Week aims to encourage everyone to think about how apprenticeships help individuals to build their skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career.
An apprenticeship can be started at any stage of a person’s career. Apprentices range from young people at the beginning of their career, to established professionals developing their current skills or looking to enter a new line of work.
Apprenticeships offer an alternative route to anyone who feels university may not be the way forward for them, or for anyone already in employment to change their chosen career. While there is generally a minimum age of 18 for apprenticeships, there is no upper limit and there are many ways that apprenticeships can be beneficial for your career – from upskilling to restarting in a new field.
