It's time to talk all things apprenticeships! Next week is National Apprenticeship Week, a week-long celebration of apprenticeships, and everyone involved in them.
From Monday 5 to Sunday 11 February 2024, employers, training providers and apprentices across the country will come together to shine a light on the positive impact that apprenticeships make to individuals, businesses and the wider community.
Whether you are planning ahead for when you leave education in the summer; are currently seeking opportunities; or are an adult looking for a way to change careers, apprenticeships are a great option.
At Skills Launchpad Plymouth, there is plenty going on, so to save you scrolling through too many posts, here's a break down of what is available to you next week;
We love apprenticeships because:
they are real jobs with real training
you can earn a salary while you learn and gain a nationally recognised qualification from level two up to degree level
they provide anyone aged 16+ with an opportunity to gain experience in a particular sector or work environment
you are supported by both the employer and a local training provider.
We hope this post has simplified things for you. We've also included some quick links below if you are looking for anything in particular:
If you have ever considered an apprenticeship, but are not quite sure where to start, next week is the perfect chance to arrange a call, or pop in and chat to one of our experienced coordinators. We will also be joined by training providers, including Focus Training, Skills Group, City College Plymouth and Greenlight Safety and Training. What are you waiting for? See you there!
