Why does your small business not have an apprentice?

It is national apprenticeship week, designed to celebrate Apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.
The objectives of National Apprenticeship Week 2014 are to:
  • Increase awareness, understanding and demand for Apprenticeships.
  • Celebrate Apprenticeship talent, skills, achievements and successes.
  • Promote all Apprenticeship levels and progression routes, including Traineeships.
The overarching theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2014 is:
Great Apprenticeships
“Great Businesses” are made by apprentices and Apprenticeships lead to“Great Prospects.”
It is about demonstrating that Apprenticeships are great for businesses, personal careers and creating opportunities for both employers and apprentices.
