What is National Apprenticeship Week?

National Apprenticeship Week 2018 (#NAW 2018) is a celebration of apprenticeships in England coordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service, taking place from the 5 – 9 March. The theme of NAW2018 is ‘apprenticeships work’, and it will showcase how apprenticeships work for individuals, businesses, communities and schools and colleges alike. During #NAW18, everyone passionate about apprenticeships will come together from across England to celebrate the success of apprenticeships, and to encourage more people to choose apprenticeships as a fast-track to a great career and business growth.
