Coordinated by the Skills Funding Agency; the National Apprentice Week looks to celebrate both apprentices and the businesses that employ them. Through a series of events across the country it aims to demonstrate the benefits of apprenticeships to companies, individuals and wider economy.

While the government aims to create 3 million apprenticeships over the next 5 years, 2015’s National Apprenticeship created a record-breaking 23,000 apprenticeship roles and this year's Apprentice Week is set surpass 2015's figures.

Apprenticeships add value to businesses through a number of ways: consumers are more inclined to buy off a business that employs an apprentice, they will pay more for their goods or services and apprentices are significantly more likely to stay with the company that trained them than their already qualified counterparts.
