A huge range of organisations support National Apprenticeship Week by organising activities, including employers, business and education organisations, learning providers, colleges and schools.

Apprenticeships help young people develop high quality, highly sought-after skills, improving their prospects while boosting an organisation’s bottom line.

And currently small and medium-sized companies can also benefit from a £1,500 Apprenticeship Grant for Employers when they recruit their first apprentice, so there has never been a better time to get involved.

At any one time there are up to 15,000 vacancies advertised on the Apprenticeships website in a variety of careers and industries across England.
