National Apprenticeship Week 2018


National Apprenticeship Week, 5 – 9 March 2018

This year’s focus on apprentices carries the message “Apprentices Work”, and this is certainly true here in the South West…

With more opportunities than ever before to earn and learn in a range of diverse industries across a number of sectors, undertaking an apprenticeship is a real alternative to going to university – not only do apprentices receive excellent training and life / work skills, but they earn a wage and complete their studies with no debt.

National Apprenticeship Week runs from 5 – 9 March, and highlights the career opportunities available via apprenticeships, whilst also celebrating Apprenticeship success. During the week a number of events are being held across the region, to see where you can access information, advice and guidance on taking up an apprenticeship please visit the #NAW2018 events map.

If you are interested in an apprenticeship, take a look at the vacancies that exist by visiting Find an Apprenticeship. There are loads of different jobs on offer from Personal Assistant to Hairdressing, Childcare to Teaching Assistant, through to Bricklaying and Sales Negotiator, and from Travel Consultant to Engineering – and did you know that you can study at a range of levels; from intermediate all the way through to degree-level!

There has never been a better time to take up an Apprenticeship – earn whilst you learn – gain the skills and workplace knowledge to set you up on your career path.
