Apprenticeships Apprenticeship Awards

It’s National Apprenticeship Week! Every year we look forward to National Apprenticeship Week as it gives us an opportunity to bring our apprentices, employers and staff together to highlight the significant impact Apprenticeships make to our learners, businesses, our communities and the wider economy.

There’s lots to shout about this National Apprenticeship Week, with a range of activities going on across our three campuses to raise awareness of Apprenticeships and how they can transform lives.

Please see below for further details about this week’s activities:

Our friendly Apprenticeship Team will have stands across our three colleges from 12pm until 1pm Monday to Friday this week to answer any questions students may have regarding Apprenticeships. They will be able to offer advice on the range of Apprenticeships we offer, as well as Apprenticeship funding.

The team also took part in Huddersfield New College's Apprenticeships Fair and enjoyed chatting to attendees about the range of apprenticeships the Group has available.

Tuesday 6th February - The Group hosted an Employers’ networking event during National Apprenticeship Week, on Tuesday 6th February from 8am until 9:30am at Snozone, at Xscape in Castleford.

Attendees discussed skills and training needs, sustainability in business and network with other local employers with colleagues from across the Group. Thanks again to Ross from Snozone Helen from Solupak and our own Head of Regional Partnerships and Projects, David White, for such fantastic industry talks!

If you missed out, don't worry - you can join at our next event on the 22nd March: https://ow.ly/CBYe50Qyibz
