Proud supporter of The Department for Education’s National Apprenticeship Week

National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) takes place between 5 to 11 February 2024 and 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 are delighted to announce that the theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2024 is ‘Skills For Life’. We have updated our NAW website and a NAW toolkit and T Level Toolkit are now available to support the apprenticeship community with planning their activity for National Apprenticeship Week 2024.

We are calling on individuals, employers, training providers and communities to get involved by encouraging everyone to consider how apprenticeships can help to provide #SkillsForLife.

During November, we will be launching a new NAW events map and introducing our NAW 2024 Supporters Club Employers.

Keep up to date with National Apprenticeship Week 2024 by following Apprenticeships on Twitter and Apprenticeships on LinkedIn or sign up to our mailing list.
