Apprenticeship Week Wales 2019

Apprenticeship Week celebrates the positive impact Apprenticeships have on individuals, businesses and the economy.


Throughout Apprenticeship Week we aim to engage with employers and promote the advantages of taking on and supporting apprentices in the workplace while highlighting the talent and skills apprentices bring businesses and the wider economy.

Apprenticeships offer a unique package of support, qualifications and experience and are playing their part in bringing down long term unemployment.

They are one of the most practical and cost effective ways to build a skilled workforce and address skills gaps, bringing a significant return on investment.

What's on: Apprenticeship Week 4 - 8 March
