National Apprenticeship Week (7-13 Feb 2022) is a week-long celebration of apprenticeships across England that happens every year. It is a flagship moment in the calendar year for supporters and ambassadors of apprenticeships, uniting them and delivering consistent messages with a strong collective impact.

The theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2022 will be ‘build the future’; reflecting on how apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career, and businesses to develop a talented workforce that is equipped with future-ready skills. To support National Apprenticeship Week 2022, individuals, employers, training providers and communities are being encouraged to get involved, to celebrate apprenticeships and how they: TRAIN apprentices, and future proof their workforce and careers through apprenticeships; RETAIN apprentices, gaining the skills and knowledge needed by the business, and seeing apprentices thrive, whilst having an impact; ACHIEVE a real return on investment from apprentices; realising the business benefits of apprenticeships, with apprentices progressing in their chosen careers.  



The Big Assembly is an interactive live digital broadcast that enables students and teachers to engage in conversation about exciting career opportunities, national events, and more.
