National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) takes place between 6 to 12 February 2023 and is an opportunity for the education and skills sector to celebrate the achievements of apprentices around the country and the positive impact they make to communities, businesses, and the wider economy.

We are delighted to announce that the theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2023 is ‘Skills For Life‘.

A toolkit is now available to support the apprenticeship community with planning their activity for National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) 2023.

We are calling on individuals, employers, training providers and communities to get involved by encouraging everyone to consider how apprenticeships can help to provide #SkillsForLife.

We will be launching our new NAW events map over the coming weeks, announcing the daily themes for the week and introducing the first ever NAW Supporters Club.

Keep up to date with National Apprenticeship Week 2023 by following Apprenticeships on Twitter and Apprenticeships on LinkedIn or sign up to our mailing list.

Don’t forget to use the hashtags #NAW2023 and #SkillsForLife on social media.

What Schools Say About Us

Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.
