AT 17 YEARS OLD, I STARTED MY APPRENTICESHIP. IT WAS A GREAT DECISION AND ONE THAT GAVE ME LIFE CHANGING OPPORTUNITIES I WOULDN'T HAVE HAD WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF MY LOCAL EMPLOYER AND COLLEGE





Throughout Apprenticeship Week we aim to engage with employers and promote the advantages of taking on and supporting apprentices in the workplace while highlighting the talent and skills apprentices bring businesses and the wider economy.

Apprenticeships offer a unique package of support, qualifications and experience and are playing their part in bringing down long term unemployment.

They are one of the most practical and cost effective ways to build a skilled workforce and address skills gaps, bringing a significant return on investment.
