National Apprenticeship Week

Build the Future: Train, Retain, Achieve

The 15th annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, taking place across England, will showcase the impact apprenticeships can have on communities, local businesses and regional economies and how they all benefit from the impact of apprenticeships. Apprentices, at all stages of their learning, will also be celebrated over the course of National Apprenticeship Week 2022.

The theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2022 is “Build the Future” as we encourage everyone to consider how apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career, and employers to develop a workforce with future ready skills.

More information on National Apprenticeship Week 2022 is available on GOV.UK and on social media channels. Follow @Apprenticeships on Twitter and National Apprenticeship Service on LinkedIn to keep up to date.
