Apprenticeship Week 2021

Our first UK wide networking event on 21st January in partnership with Keele University was purposefully planned to engage in conversations before  the National Apprenticeship Week between 8th-14th February 2021.

Apprenticeships are important to anyone from any background and for any level. They open up opportunities to access further opportunities and to gain experience in working in a specific field.

You can read about our event in partnership with Keele University.

We are also releasing our Event Report on Friday, so keep an eye out for this.
