National Apprenticeship Week 2022 takes place from 7th to 13th February 2022. This week brings together everyone passionate about apprenticeships to celebrate the value, benefit, and opportunity that apprenticeships bring.
The theme this year is ‘Build the Future’, a continuation of the theme used in 2021 and allowing the week to link to the key pillars of the Build Back Better campaign.
TRAIN – Future proof your workforce or career though an apprenticeship.
ACHIEVE – Realise the business benefits and career progression available and how apprenticeships and traineeships can help you transform your future.
RETAIN – Apprentices gain the skills and knowledge your organisation needs, learn the values of your business and make impact. They allow you to develop your future workforce and talent.
Technical education has been transformed in recent years through programmes such as apprenticeships, Traineeships, T Levels, and KickStart. The week will encourage the country to consider and celebrate how technical education can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career, and employers to develop a workforce with future ready skills.
We will be inspiring the nation with engaging stories of apprentices’ progression – the increase in their confidence, skills, knowledge and how apprenticeships have kick-started incredible careers. Our advocates will showcase the business benefits and return on investment of employing apprentices, how employers are using apprenticeships to fill skills gaps, upskill and revitalise their workforce ensuring they are future proof and future ready!
Businesses – There are a range of activities that will be taking place across England to showcase how apprenticeships have helped businesses of all sizes and sectors across England. There will be over 1,200 virtual and in-person events targeted at a range of audiences. This includes stakeholders, businesses, training providers and schools. For more information: Click Here
