National Apprenticeship Week 2023

Apprenticeship events running from 6 – 12 February 2023

The council and its partners are running events throughout the rest of National Apprenticeship Week; from virtual career fairs and myth-busting talks to open days with employers.

“Research clearly shows that apprenticeships mean a massive boost for business: from retaining a talented workforce equipped with future-ready skills to improving overall productivity and quality of output. Our new levy transfer scheme now makes it a total no-brainer for businesses to hire more apprentices and train their staff using money from the council”

Cllr Martin Seaton, cabinet member for jobs, business and town centres

“I chose to start an apprenticeship because I saw it as an opportunity to get direct training which I could apply to my role straight away. I really liked the fact I could gain a qualification while earning a living. It means I don’t have to think about financial pressures and can concentrate solely on my professional development.

I believe businesses should take on apprentices as it is a chance to train and develop individuals for the specific demands of your workforce. I’ve seen first-hand how this improves productivity and saves money on costly recruitment.”
