National Apprenticeship Week (NAW2019)
National Apprenticeship Week (NAW 2019) is here! It takes place from the 4th to 8th March 2019 and is coordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service. . This annual celebration of apprenticeships is about bringing the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy.
‘Blaze a Trail’ will be the theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2019 (NAW 2019).
Apprenticeships and Skills Minister Anne Milton said:
”Blazing a trail is what being an apprentice is all about and will be our theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2019. Because that’s what’s happening up and down the country – apprentices and employers blazing a trail.
I want everyone to recognise the change that apprenticeships can bring – for employers blazing a trail to new markets, apprentices to new career opportunities and for colleges and training providers raising the skills levels for everyone.”
Keith Smith, director, Education and Skills Funding Agency said:
”I want the 12th annual National Apprenticeship Week to be the biggest and most successful, yet.
The theme for this year: Blaze a Trail is at the heart of what apprenticeships are all about. I really hope our partners feel as excited about it as we do and, like previous years, they will can get fully behind the Week.
We want everyone to consider hosting an event or activity so more people get to see and hear about the huge benefits apprenticeships can bring to employers, individuals and local communities.”
