National Apprenticeship Week 2020

Here at Warrington & Vale Royal College we are marking National Apprenticeship Week 2020 with a number of events, sessions and workshops.

National Apprenticeship Week is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our current apprentices and celebrate our apprenticeship employer partners.

Each year apprenticeship providers and employers up and down the country celebrate their work with apprentices during National Apprenticeship Week whilst working alongside the national picture which aims to change people’s perceptions that apprenticeships are for those who “couldn’t get the grades” or are limited to trades such as construction or engineering. Apprenticeships are now well on their way to establishing themselves as a viable alternative route to university for bright young people – as well as those already in work.

Focusing on a theme of ‘Look Beyond’, National Apprenticeship Week 2020 is:

  • Calling on young people to look beyond traditional routes into employment and explore the diversity of career options and industries now available to them through apprenticeships;
  • Calling on employers to look beyond traditional hiring routes and shout about the value they already see from diversifying their workforce by employing apprentices
  • Calling on parents and teachers to look beyond old preconceptions around apprenticeships, building understanding of the true value they bring, and sharing this with young people.
