Build the Future for National Apprenticeship Week 2021

The theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2021 has been announced, and it’s a bold statement of intent: ‘Build the Future‘.

The 14th National Apprenticeship Week takes place from the 8th to the 14th of February 2021.

The annual week-long celebration aims to showcase the effect that apprenticeships have on businesses, communities, and economies across England. As always, there’ll be a keen focus on how apprenticeships help individuals to build the skills required for a rewarding career.

Peter Mucklow, Director, Apprenticeships, Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) said: “There is no doubt that National Apprenticeship Week 2021 will be different this year in how we celebrate apprenticeship success.”

“We are however continuing to ask employers to encourage everyone to consider how apprenticeships can help build organisations for years to come; whilst showing the clear return on investment realised when apprentices are brought into the business. Employers are helping the nation to #BuildTheFuture through apprenticeships.”

“The diversity of career options and industries available now, through apprenticeships, is outstanding. We want all current apprentices from all sectors to get behind the Week and to showcase the positive impact of apprenticeships, on careers, families and communities.”
