National Apprenticeship Week 2021 – Build the Future!

National Apprenticeship Week 2021 aims to shine a light on the amazing work being done by employers and apprentices across the country.

The 14th annual National Apprenticeship Week will take place from 8 to 14 February 2021.

The annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, taking place across England, will showcase how apprenticeships have helped employers and people of all ages and backgrounds. Employers are encouraged to promote the great work of their apprentices, whilst highlighting the many benefits apprenticeships bring to their business. Apprentices, at all stages of their learning will also be celebrated over the course of National Apprenticeship Week 2021. We are looking forward to sharing some of the amazing results our apprentices have achieved this year as well as showing you all the range of our fantastic apprenticeships available.

The theme for National Apprenticeship Week this year is “Build the Future” as we encourage everyone to consider how apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career, and employers to build a workforce with future ready skills.

We believe that in order to “Build the Future” we need to first look after our mental health and the mental health of those around us. The current pandemic and the subsequent 3 lockdowns has has a major affect on the mental health of many of us and this includes apprentices across the UK who are trying to establish their careers in an ever changing workplace.

System People and SP Training will be hosting a joint fundraising event during Apprenticeship Week to shine a light on managing mental health and hope to raise some money for Mind, a national mental health charity. We will be releasing more information about how you can get involved in the lead up to National Apprenticeship Week and will launch our just giving page shortly for those who wish to begin fundraising.

Stay Safe everyone and watch this space!
