National apprenticeship week 2019 round up

Apprenticeships: National Apprenticeship Week, 4 to 8 March 2019

Last week employers across the NHS celebrated National Apprenticeship Week by delivering a range of initiatives from team building exercises to apprentices visiting the House of Commons. 

This year’s theme was ‘blaze a trail’ which was inspired by the Fire it up national apprenticeship campaign. Many trusts used the week as an opportunity to raise awareness about the apprenticeship opportunities available to both new and existing staff in their organisations, regardless of their age or background.

Last week’s activities ranged from trusts running news stories that featured their local apprentices, to others who were creative in how they ran information sessions such as the Royal Orthopaedic hospital who hired a single decker bus to host their drop-in, and Lambeth hospital who used cake to attract staff to their lunch-time session. 

Over the week we showcased a range of good practice examples and blogs that highlight how apprenticeships can offer career pathways and development opportunities. To read the full list and find out more visit our
