National Apprenticeship Week 2021

National Apprenticeship Week 2021


Hey everyone it’s Danielle, Careers Leader here at Grange. I want to make sure nobody misses out on National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) next week! 

Monday, 8 February until Friday 12 February is an entire week dedicated to all things apprenticeships. 

It’s the perfect time to explore if an apprenticeship route is right for you and apply for that once in a lifetime opportunity! 

#NAW21 – What can I expect?

During the week, there will be zillions of online things for you and your parents/carers to get involved with – virtually of course! 

It’ll also be a showcase of those who’ve made a career out of an apprenticeship and look at how some employers are stepping up their game, making vital changes for Covid-19. 

You may need to register for each event but don’t worry we’ve preselected some of the best ones here. 

You’ll be able to search and apply for an actual apprenticeship vacancy.  If you’re not ready to apply yet, you can watch a video about becoming an apprenticeship or take part in an interactive quiz. Put your knowledge to the test and find out what you actually do know about Apprenticeships.
