National Apprenticeship Week 2022

It’s National Apprenticeship Week (7-13 February). ‘Build the Future’ is the theme for this year’s week-long celebration which shines a light on how apprenticeships have helped employers and people of all ages and backgrounds.

The main focus of National Apprenticeship Week is to encourage everyone to consider how apprenticeships help individuals build the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career.

The Apprenticeship and Widening Access team have exciting events planned throughout the week to celebrate the achievements of the Trust’s apprentices, past and present, highlight the amazing opportunities available within the Trust, as well as show how apprentices of all ages and backgrounds are helping to evolve the organisation.

Apprentices enjoy awards success

We enjoyed a hugely successful night at the Gloucestershire Live Apprenticeship Awards in October last year, scooping five prizes in total, including the Employer of the Year Award.

To support National Apprenticeship Week, the Apprenticeship team will be holding a virtual awards ceremony to celebrate our current and recently-completed apprentices and recognise all of their hard work, passion and commitment throughout our Trust.

The Apprenticeship and Widening Access team would like to say a huge well done to all those who were nominated and a big thank you to those individuals who nominated their colleagues for the awards.

Tune into our social media channels at 12pm this Friday (11 February) to find out the winners!
