National Apprenticeship Week

5th – 11th February 2024

National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) is an opportunity for the education and skills sector to celebrate the achievements of apprentices around the country and the positive impact they make to communities, businesses, and the wider economy.

The Department for Education’s theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2024 is ‘Skills for Life’, calling for individuals, employers, training providers and communities to get involved by encouraging everyone to consider how apprenticeships can help to provide #SkillsForLife.
