What is National Apprenticeship Week?

Apprenticeships are on fire at the moment; creating tons of job opportunities, boosting economic growth and building future careers all over the country.

Now in its 17th year, National Apprenticeship Week is dedicated to celebrating the positive impact that apprentices have on themselves and the world around them.

It’s by far the biggest week in the apprenticeship community’s calendar. And with a packed agenda of virtual and in-person events, live-streamed Q&As and social media takeovers, #NAW2024 is the perfect place to start your apprenticeship journey

This year’s theme? Skills for Life. Because an apprenticeship is more than just a job - it’s an opportunity for you to find your purpose, and fulfil your potential.

Hear it from an apprentice...

"Ever since I joined Aldi I've gained confidence in myself and find it much easier to talk to others" Store Apprentice at Aldi

"Before my course I didn't like to get into any difficult conversations with other members of staff or customers, but now I have the skills to deal with this" Assistant Manager at Travis Perkins

"Across the past five months, the amount that I’ve learnt and gained as a result of my role as a PR Apprentice at Disney has been insane and I always wonder what I’d have ended up doing or if I’d have found my apprenticeship at all if it wasn’t for me endlessly checking on RateMyApprenticeship and subscribing to their mailing list! Within my role, each day varies from the next which leaves me so excited for the opportunities to come and so grateful for all of the experiences I’ve had so far!!" PR apprentice at Disney
