SummitSkills will join hundreds of organisations in celebrating the positive impact that apprenticeships have on individuals, business and the economy during the sixth annual National Apprenticeship Week from 11-15 March.

National Apprenticeship Week is organised by the National Apprenticeship Service. Hundreds of events are expected to take place across England and the week is supported by employers, business and education organisations, learning providers, colleges and schools. Last year more than 800 events and activities were offered, ranging from business events designed to encourage more employers to recruit apprentices, to interactive careers events aimed at potential apprentices. Small and medium-sized companies can currently benefit from a £1,500 Apprenticeship Grant for Employers when they recruit their first apprentice.
