THE 13th annual National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) will take place from 3 to 7 February 2020.
NAW is an annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships across England and acts as a time to recognise and applaud apprenticeship success stories across the country.
Apprenticeship employers use the opportunity to promote the success of their apprentices and highlight the huge benefits to other employers, of all sizes, who are thinking of taking on an apprentice.
Apprentices across the country will also be celebrated throughout the week, with engagement and events in schools and colleges.
Throughout the 13 years, National Apprenticeship Week has brought together apprenticeship supporters from across the country, with MPs, ambassadors, apprentices, training providers and top employers involved in recognising the value and importance of apprenticeships.
Keith Smith, apprenticeships director, Education and Skills Funding Agency/Department for Education commented: “A week-long celebration of all things apprenticeships gives opportunity to recognise the importance of apprenticeships and their impact. National Apprenticeship Week also enables employers, providers, partners and apprentices themselves to creatively celebrate what apprentices achieve and the impact they have locally, regionally and nationally.
“In the coming months we will release more details for the Week 2020, but by sharing the date in advance I am hopeful that our many partners will start to plan some fresh and inspiring activity that they will run during National Apprenticeship Week 2020.”
The theme of NAW 2020 will be announced in the Autumn.
