‘Build the Future’ is the theme of this years National Apprenticeship Week #NAW2022 and there is a whole week of activities focussing on the benefits apprenticeships can have on individuals, businesses and local communities.
The 15th annual week-long celebration of Apprenticeships is taking place across England encouraging individuals of any age to reach their career goals by building their skills and knowledge.
There is a different focus for each day of the week with Social Media hashtags to help engage supporters and build involvement with both Employers and Apprentices. From the launch on Monday 7th to #AskAnEmployer and #AskAnApprentice, Celebration Friday and #SelfieSunday, there is something to appeal to everyone.
There are also a number of live virtual events during the week including a variety of seminars such as what life as an apprentice is really like, CV Writing tips with the professionals and an open FAQ Session; all designed to encourage prospective employers and apprentices to consider how training can impact them positively. For employers that might be the return on investment or talent retention for their business. For Apprentices it might be discussing the impact of their training, progression and how they have achieved their career goals.
Promoting National Apprenticeship Week provides business leaders and teachers with great opportunities to focus on how apprenticeships are not only the future of business success but also help to build future careers and support job creation and the economy.
