The theme for this year’s National Apprenticeship Week is “Ladder of Opportunity”. In it’s 10th anniversary year, the week will give everyone involved in the Apprenticeship community the perfect chance to celebrate individual stories of career progression over the last decade from Traineeships through to Higher and Degree Apprenticeships.


What is National Apprenticeship Week?

National Apprenticeship Week is co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service and is designed to celebrate Apprenticeships and Traineeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

What are the objectives of the week?
