Businesses and apprentices are being encouraged to get involved during National Apprenticeship Week, which runs from Monday 6 March until Friday 10 March.
National Apprenticeship Week is co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service and is designed to celebrate Apprenticeships and Traineeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.
This year’s campaign theme is the ‘Ladder of Opportunity’ and focuses on the progression routes of apprenticeships, from traineeships through to higher and Degree Apprenticeships.
Worcestershire’s apprentices and apprentice employers are being invited to get involved through social media by tweeting using the hashtag #MadeByApprentices #NAW2017 and #GetInGoFar to join the national conversations and using #WorcsApprentice for messages of support for apprenticeships within the County.
There are many benefits to hiring an apprentice, for example, to tackle a skills shortage in the business, bring ideas and grow talent within the company, reduce recruitment costs, increase productivity and the bottom line.
For more information about apprenticeships and for events based in Worcestershire during Apprenticeship Week, visit the Worcestershire Apprenticeships website.
