The UK government has recently announced the dates for the 14th annual National Apprenticeship Week.
Next year’s edition of the much-celebrated National Apprenticeship Week will take place between the 8th and 14th of February 2021.
Running since 2008, this week-long celebration of apprenticeships has received widespread praise and engagement from apprentices, employers and providers. Events have traditionally taken place up and down the country, showcasing how apprenticeships have helped both businesses and people from across the employment spectrum.
Focus for 2021
Whilst a theme has yet to be announced, a key focus will be placed on the amazing work by employers and apprentices across the country over the past 12 months. It will also recognise how employers and providers have stepped up combat the challenges during these unprecedented times.
It’s expected to have a different feel than in previous years, with a large emphasis on digital and virtual events. Kaplan will be no exception to this, and has plans for exciting activities and content during the week.
Jenny Pelling, Apprenticeship Partnerships Director at Kaplan, comments:
“The success of this year’s apprentices has been a remarkable and humbling achievement. As well as showcasing the positive impact they’ve made in the workplace, National Apprenticeship Week highlights the impressive dedication of employers in developing apprentices.
The brand of apprenticeships is improving all the time and we are delighted to be helping boost the awareness during National Apprenticeship Week.”
With learners in over one third of the top 100 Apprenticeship employers of 2020-2021, we pride ourselves on the quality of our apprenticeship programmes, and look forward to celebrating with our amazing apprentices and partners during National Apprenticeship Week 2021.
