National Apprenticeship Week 2020 announced

The 13th annual National Apprenticeship Week will take place 3-7 February 2020.

The annual, week-long celebration of apprenticeships across England provides the opportunity to recognise and applaud apprenticeship success stories. Employers use the initiative 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. Many current and former apprentices will go back to school to tell their story, attracting the next generation of apprentices so they, too, can fire up their future career.

Anne Milton, minister for apprenticeships and skills, said, “I am thrilled that National Apprenticeship Week 2020 will take place during early February 2020. It’s a chance to celebrate apprentices and the brilliant work being done by schools, the FE sector and employers across the country to promote the huge benefits of apprenticeships.

“Apprenticeships offer people of all ages and backgrounds a high-quality route to skilled employment, with the option to train at every level in a range of exciting professions.

“I would encourage employers, training providers, schools, apprentices and our ambassador networks to start considering how they will get involved in National Apprenticeship Week 2020.”
