College Gears Up For National Apprenticeship Week 2014

Fri, 2002-08-30 01:00

The seventh annual National Apprenticeship Week takes place from 3-7 March 2014, with hundreds of events expected to take place across England.

The Week, which is co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service, is designed to celebrate Apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the economy.

Every year the Week increases in popularity and National Apprenticeship Week 2013 was a phenomenal success, with more than 900 events and activities on offer. These ranged from business events designed to encourage more employers to recruit apprentices, to interactive careers events aimed at potential apprentices.

And EDC have loads of activities planned. One apprentice will job swap with his firm’s CEO, a group of employers and their apprentices will tour the Houghall Campus and a group of hairdressing apprentices will swap their scissors for rolling pins as they bake cakes for a fundraising event. Look out for updates next week....
