One Month to Go Until NAW 2017!

Abby Davies - Thursday, February 09, 2017

The National Apprenticeship Week is coordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service and it will be taking place this year from the 6-10 of March, which means that it is now less than a month away! The event brings together apprentices, employers and training providers to discuss and celebrate the successes and positive impact that apprenticeships have had across all industries throughout the UK. And since this year is the 10th year of the event, it is definitely going to be a good one!

The week will include hundreds of events across the UK to showcase both apprentices and apprentice employers. The theme for 2017 is a ‘ladder of opportunity’, focusing on celebrating stories of career progression from traineeships through to higher and degree apprenticeships. The aim is to inspire and encourage even more people to choose to go the apprenticeship route – using it as a ladder of opportunity to a great career.

During the week the AIM Apprenticeships team will be visiting over 16 schools, getting involved with the students and encouraging them to consider taking the apprenticeship route when they leave school. Although we recognise the importance of the NAW and praise how it gets everyone involved, this is something that we are doing all year round! We are visiting multiple schools each week, promoting the advantages of apprenticeships and offering students advice and guidance of how to choose the career path that suits them best.

To see events that are happening during the week near you, check out this website. We are really looking forward to getting involved with NAW 2017 and all that it has to offer – watch this space or follow us on Twitter to see how we get on!
