So, what is it? Next week is the 15th annual National Apprenticeship Week! National Apprenticeship Week (or #NAW2022) is an event that celebrates apprenticeships around the UK. It brings together employers, apprentices and training providers as well as any other young people interested in taking the apprenticeship path. WANT MORE DETAILS? It takes place during the 7th - 13th February 2022 and the theme of the week is #BuildTheFuture for a second year running. The aim is to help aspiring apprentices reach their career goals by providing them with all the useful skills they will need to achieve this. This year, we will be hosting our first ever Instagram Live, joined by current apprentices to share their knowledge and inspire others to take their first steps in the apprenticeship world. Expect to see topics discussed such as... • How to make their applications stand out • What a day in the life of an apprentice is really like • Social perks of being an apprentice Encouraging students to join the Live will help focus on the apprentice experience, followed by tips and advice. For those that attend on Wednesday 9th February at 6pm, there will be a chance to win a £100 Deliveroo voucher! The winner will be announced at the end of the session.
