National and Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018
National Apprenticeship Week and Scottish Apprenticeship Week ran from 5-9 March 2018, with the aim of raising the profile of apprenticeships and to celebrate the important role they have in equipping people of all ages with the skills that they need to prosper in their lives.
Employers, apprentices, business support organisations, learning providers, colleges and schools across the UK support the week by hosting activities to showcase the achievements and benefits of apprenticeships. National Apprenticeship Week is co-ordinated by the Skills Funding Agency, and Scottish Apprenticeship Week is co-ordinated by Skills Development Scotland, with the initiatives including hundreds of events and activities across England and Scotland.
As a large employer of engineering apprentices in the UK – with more than 400 graduates and apprentices in training at different facilities across the country – Leonardo is proud to continue our association with National Apprenticeship Week and Scottish Apprenticeship Week. We played an active role throughout the week in support of these important initiatives. This includes engaging with students through apprenticeship days in local schools and running STEM activities.
