National Apprenticeship Week 2018

06 March 2018

This year's National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) will continue up to 9 March, with a number of supporting events ongoing around the UK.

Designed to highlight the benefits and opportunities provided by apprenticeships, the NAW theme for this year is Apprenticeships Work.

The message is used as a heading to show how apprenticeships work for individuals, employers, the community and the economy.

More information on the week and associated events is available here.

Last year saw the launch of the Apprenticeship Levy, combined with the government's pledge to drive significant increase in the numbers of apprenticeships.

However, 2017 saw a significant fall in apprenticeship numbers, as companies reported finding the levy too complicated and confusing, resulting in a lack of uptake.

The government is now hoping that numbers will increase this year, as understanding and acceptance of the levy increases.

Further thoughts on the benefits of apprenticeships are provided by Marissa Francis, HVAC improver, here.
