National Apprenticeship Week 2023 took place from 6 to 12 February. This annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, brought together businesses and apprentices across the country to shine a light on the positive impact that apprenticeships make to individuals, businesses and the wider economy. The theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2023 was âSkills for Lifeâ. The week reflected on how apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career and help businesses to develop a talented workforce that is equipped with skills for the future.
Additionally, we are providing a free guide entitled âThe Parentsâ Guide to Apprenticeshipsâ which highlights the benefits of apprenticeships and answers some of the many questions you might have. A selection of the most common questions are referenced below for your convenience.

Students had a private 2 hour tour and then a Business Studies session covering the above points.
