The National Apprenticeship Week is taking place from the 7th-13th of February this year and we at Aspiration Training are looking forward to it!

Get in touch with us today to find out more about the week and our apprenticeship vacancies.

What is National Apprenticeship Week?

The late 2000s saw the apprenticeship momentum grow. The first National Apprenticeship Week took place in 2007, aimed at drawing more attention nationally to the benefits of apprenticeships for both employees and apprentices. The event is run and organised by the government.

National Apprenticeship Week brings together both businesses and apprentices across the country to shine a light on the positive impact that apprenticeships have. It celebrates the positive influence they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

Traditionally, a range of activities will be arranged across England to showcase how apprenticeships have helped businesses of all sizes and sectors across the country.
