National Apprenticeship Week is just around the corner, running from 8th-14th February, and there will be many things to get involved with.
NAW is an annual celebration of all things apprenticeships, and this year will be no different - if a little more virtual-based than usual. The theme for this year’s National Apprenticeship Week is “Build the Future”, which we think is very apt.
There will be plenty of events being held nationwide, virtually, to celebrate and highlight the fantastic work of apprentices in all fields.
At Kaplan, we have several exciting (and free!) events coming up we thought we’d share with you. We certainly think there is something for everyone. Here are some highlights.
Kaplan Webinar - “The Kaplan Apprenticeship Advisory Panel - Build the Future”
Through this free webinar, on February 10th at 11,45am, you can hear from our very own Kaplan apprentices. They’ll be discussing: what practical steps they’ve taken to build their future through their apprenticeship, what skills have helped them succeed in the world of work, and what they’ve been able to achieve as the “voice of apprentices”.
Excitingly, we will also have the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister - Gillian Keegan - joining us. She will offer her views on how apprenticeships are building the future in the financial services, accountancy and tax sectors.
This should be a great event for all current apprentices, those considering starting an apprenticeship, and employers wanting to understand the benefits of an apprenticeship in 2021.

Partner Event - “CIMA Virtual Apprenticeship Conference - NAW2021”
Our partners over at CIMA are also hosting an event during NAW on the 10th, during what will be a busy day! Their virtual conference will celebrate apprenticeships with numerous guest speakers lined up throughout the day.
During the event, you’ll hear success stories from current CIMA Apprentices and employer partners about the impact apprentices have had to their businesses. Kaplan’s own Apprenticeship Partnerships Director, Jenny Pelling and Apprenticeship Development Director Jason Moss will be discussing how apprenticeships are changing, and can be used to address the digital skills gap in 2021.

Online Careers Fair - “Leeds Apprenticeship Festival 2021”
Usually held as an annual live event, this year’s festival will be entirely online. This means you can speak to employers and training providers (including Kaplan) all from the comfort of your own home.
Running from the 8th-12th February, the festival will have a variety of activities, from presentation videos (delivered by employers and training providers) to live Q&A sessions directly with employers.
Kaplan will be present, and you’ll be able to speak to our expert recruitment team on Thursday 11th February. A must-attend for anyone in the wider Leeds area considering an apprenticeship.
