During the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdown, Worcestershire has seen some fantastic support for apprenticeships with a large majority able to continue their learning and development in one form or another.

To celebrate this, Worcestershire Apprenticeships have been engaging with local employers to share some of these great stories of support across social media. The campaign is also hoped to encourage more organisations to utilise apprenticeships to create their future workforce.
