What is National Apprenticeship Week?

National Apprenticeship Week 2024 will run in the UK from Monday 5th February to Sunday 11th February. The week-long event aims to showcase the contributions of apprenticeships in providing individuals with valuable skills and training while offering businesses an effective way to develop a skilled and motivated workforce.

This week is organised by the National Apprenticeship Service, and it typically involves collaboration with employers, colleges, training providers, apprentices, and other stakeholders. The focus is on raising awareness, challenging misconceptions about apprenticeships, providing resources and celebrating achievements of apprentices.

The specific themes and activities may vary each year, but the overarching goal is to encourage more individuals to consider apprenticeships as a valuable pathway to skills development and career progression.

What is the theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2024?

Apprenticeships are good for the wider economy as they prepare students with future ready skills. The theme for National Apprenticeship Week is ‘Skills for Life’.

Skills for Life is more than just a slogan, it’s a guiding principle that encapsulates the essence of National Apprenticeship Week in 2024. It signifies the transformative power of apprenticeships in equipping individuals with practical skills, amazing opportunities, knowledge and the resilience needed for success in both their professional and personal lives.

During this week, we celebrate the idea that apprenticeships go beyond job-specific training. You can learn expert advice from a range of businesses whom instill skills that last a lifetime, foster personal development, adaptability, and a foundation for continuous learning.

It’s about empowering apprentices to make a positive impact and to provide them with support to navigate life’s challenges confidently, armed with the skills they’ve gained on their unique journey towards a fulfilling career.

How do you celebrate National Apprenticeship Week?

During National Apprenticeship Week, various activities and events take place across the country to promote the positive impact of apprenticeships.

This includes employers showcasing their programmes, share apprentice success stories, and offer insights into career opportunities. Schools and colleges organise informative events, inviting employers for talks and hosting workshops.

Government initiatives include campaigns and webinars, encouraging both employers and individuals to embrace apprenticeship schemes.
