Let's Get Started ⏱️

This year marks the 17th Annual National Apprenticeship Week with the theme ‘Skills for Life’. Apprenticeships are an excellent way for businesses to grow and allow young people looking for work to start gaining valuable on-the-job experience.

We will be celebrating with the entire Apprenticeship community to promote the benefits of Apprenticeships, progression opportunities, exciting new training programmes, and explain how Apprenticeships can be beneficial for both learner and employer.

HR Support Apprentice Success Story 🏆

Gabrielle’s apprenticeship success story is a remarkable tale of career transformation. Initially seeking a change, she joined an apprenticeship with The Haulage Group, through Protocol, to pursue her passion for human resources.

With enthusiasm and dedication, Gabrielle learned the ropes from experienced mentors, gaining practical insights into HR.

Her commitment and ability to apply knowledge in real-world situations didn’t go unnoticed. The Haulage Group recognised her potential, giving her more and more responsibilities.

Celebration Friday

Let's Celebrate 🎉

Today is about expressing gratitude towards the mentors and mentees that play vital roles in the success of apprenticeships. We want to take a moment to acknowledge and appreciate the remarkable contributions of these individuals who, through their commitment and collaboration, breathe life into the world of professional development.

Now is the time to recognise mentors whose guidance shapes careers and fosters promising futures, for learners, through a dynamic partnership that enriches knowledge and experience.

Let’s celebrate the meaningful impact of these connections! Join us by tagging your mentors or sharing your apprenticeship journey.

NAW Weekender

Say Cheese! 😁

This week, we are encouraging our employers and learners, with permission from the employer, to take a selfie at their workplace as part of the apprenticeship. The aim of this is to show people that there have been many misconceptions about apprenticeships only being office based or business admin related.

Take a selfie at your workplace and submit it to this website to help us illustrate how varied apprenticeships actually are.
