Build the Future – National Apprenticeship Week 2021 (8 – 14 February 2021)

View all News View all Events

Starting on Monday 8 February 2021, National Apprenticeship Week is nearly here!

The theme this year is ‘Build the Future’

The 14th annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, taking place across England, showcases the impact apprenticeships can have on communities, local businesses and regional economies and how they all benefit from the impact of apprenticeships.

We all know that National Apprenticeship Week is going to be different this year. But fear not, our training providers, colleges, employers, and all those celebrating their apprentices and apprenticeships have created a range of online events, activity and resources.

The Heart of the South West has a wide range of industries and high-quality apprenticeship opportunities. Visit our Apprenticeship Page for more information about apprenticeships in the Heart of the South West.
