JIB supports National Apprenticeship Week

The JIB is proud to support National Apprenticeship Week, the annual celebration of apprenticeships which shines a light on the amazing work being done by employers and apprentices across the country.

The week-long celebration brings together apprenticeship ambassadors, training providers, apprentices, parents and employers and highlights the work being done across the whole apprenticeship community to promote apprenticeships and their impact.

If you’re an electrical apprentice and either registered with the JIB, or employed by a JIB member company, click here for more information and resources to support you through your apprenticeship.

If you want to further your education, advance your craft, or upskill, the JIB Skills Development Fund may also be able to provide financial assistance. The Fund promotes a higher standard of technical knowledge and craftsmanship which is done through the funding of up to 75% for courses which are relevant to the industry. Further information is available here.

Industry Support

The JIB works closely with a number of industry partners to support apprentices. One of those partners, JTL is promoting National Apprenticeship Week as an opportunity for learners to renew their aspirations and build skills in a bid to boost employment chances. Whether you are looking to explore post-16 options or looking for a change of career, an apprenticeship gives you the chance to gain skills and earn at the same time, all whilst increasing your chances of securing a job in your chosen industry.

The Electrotechnical Skills Partnership (TESP) also plays a key role in supporting apprenticeship development for the electrotechnical industry and is promoting the benefits of apprenticeships during National Apprenticeship Week. Further information for both apprentices and prospective employers including how to recruit an apprentice and the benefits it can bring to a business are available here.

Now is the time for action. Let’s celebrate the diversity of opportunity and value that apprenticeships bring and work together during National Apprenticeship Week in support of the ‘Build the Future Campaign: Train, Retain and Achieve’.
