National Apprenticeship Week 2018 – get involved

National Apprenticeship Week 2018 takes place from 5 to 9 March 2018. The theme of the week is Apprenticeships Work to showcase how apprenticeships work for employers, individuals, local communities and the wider economy.

Training organisations play a vital role in ensuring apprenticeships work for both apprentices and employers. To make it as easy as possible for you to take part ESFA have developed a range of engaging resources.

You can support the week on social media by:

  • asking employers and apprentices you work with to take part in the #WorksForMe campaign
  • using the #NAW2018 on your social media content and encourage other supporters of apprenticeships to do the same
