Get Involved: National Apprenticeship Week
The Government’s National Apprenticeship Week has kicked off with the launch of a grime video from P. Money. Produced by Jamal Edwards, the track saw apprentices assisting with the recording, video production, and the launch event. The theme for National Apprenticeship Week this year is, ‘Look Beyond’, to encourage employers to change up traditional hiring routes and “shout about the value they already see from diversifying their workforce by employing apprentices”.
Strategic Lead for Talent at MyKindaFuture, Simon Reichwald, said that “the apprenticeship landscape has changed in a positive way on all fronts. Schools and colleges are embracing apprenticeships and there is clearly an increased appetite to communicate their potential to students.
“In addition, far more employers are rolling out apprenticeships, recognising their role in helping businesses to achieve strategic objectives, such as developing future skills. The government is also doing its bit to raise the profile of apprenticeships across Britain.”
However, it’s not just young people who can apply for apprenticeships. Earning whilst learning is also available to anyone wishing to return to the workplace or looking for a career change. Check out the video below released as part of the Fire It Up campaign.
