Get involved with National Apprenticeship Week

This National Apprenticeship Week (5 to 9 March) ASK are showcasing the exciting opportunities apprenticeships have to offer for anyone over age 16. During the Week, schools across England are joining the 10,000 Talks movement (#10kTalks), which aims to inspire 10,000 people about the value of apprenticeships.

To get involved with 10,000 talks, invite an apprentice or former apprentice into your school to share their apprenticeships success story. In doing so you will help inspire students by showcasing how apprenticeships are a great way for people to progress in work and life, whatever their age, gender or educational background.

To be part of 10,000 Talks, whether you’re a school, a current apprentice or a former apprentice. For more ideas of how you can take part in the Week, visit the National Apprenticeship Week campaign site.

Are you using apprenticeships to upskill your school’s workforce?

Apprenticeships are not just for 16-24 year olds or new recruits. Anyone can become an apprentice at any age and benefit from government funding to support their apprenticeship training. The DfE are looking for case studies on how your school has gone about appointing apprentices, and benefited from using the apprenticeships levy – please email with your feedback.
