D2N2 supports National Apprenticeship Week campaign to “Build the Future”

The theme of this year’s National Apprenticeship Week is “Build the Future” with everyone encouraged to consider how apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career, and employers to build a workforce with future ready skills.

The 14th annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, taking place across England, showcases the impact apprenticeships can have on communities, local businesses and regional economies and how they all benefit from the impact of apprenticeships. With recent times forcing us to rely on technology and virtual meetings more than ever, this year is anticipated to be a little different, but just as exciting, National Apprenticeship Week.

There is a different theme and activities to take part in each day this week, from #asktheemployer on Twitter to companies holding graduation ceremonies to celebrate their own apprentices.

Rachel Quinn, Head of People and Skills at D2N2 LEP said: “National Apprenticeship Week is the ideal time for anyone interested in apprenticeships to find out more and hear from those who have already taken this route.

“Apprenticeships are a great route into work for all (not just young people), and a really credible ‘work, learn and earn’ alternative to University. Not only do they provide individuals with industry recognised qualifications, and valuable practical skills but they also allow companies to mould them and adapt training according to the needs of their business”.

For more information on how to get involved this week and beyond, visit the National Apprenticeships website.
