National Apprenticeship Week 2024!

January 17, 2024

National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) is just around the corner, and we at BPIF Training are eagerly gearing up to celebrate! From Monday 5th, to Friday 9th February, we’ll be joining the nationwide conversation about the incredible value that apprenticeships bring to individuals, employers, and the economy as a whole.

Let’s take a closer look at how BPIF Training plans to engage in NAW 2024:

Monday, February 5th: Apprenticeships for All

Apprenticeships are for everyone, regardless of age, sector, level, or background. They provide the skills employers need and pave the way for successful careers. To kick off the week, we’ll be launching our new “Fire it Up” brochure. We’ll also be  sharing a blog post highlighting the importance of apprenticeships and how BPIF Training, Employers and the industry as a whole supports the growth of apprenticeships. Don’t miss our photo and video contest for the ‘best apprenticeship in action’ shot, with exciting incentives for participation. Results will be announced on Friday!

Tuesday, February 6th: Employer Tuesday

On this day, we’ll be shining a spotlight on our employers and the apprenticeships they offer. We’ll dispel myths, promote Levy transfers, and share insights on how to advertise and recruit apprentices effectively. If you have any content you would like us to share, make sure to let us know.

Wednesday, February 7th: Apprentice Wednesday

This day is all about celebrating our incredible apprentices! We’ll feature case studies, highlight our “Apprentice of the Year” nominations, and sharing apprentice feedback results and surveys. We encourage our apprentices to share their journeys on social media showcasing their amazing achievements.

Thursday, February 8th: Feedback Thursday

On Feedback Thursday, we’ll encourage open discussions about skills gaps and how we can collectively address them within our industry. Join us on LinkedIn for polls that shed light on industry-specific skills needs and let us know what you’d like to see from us in terms of addressing these challenges. We’re eager to engage in meaningful conversations on social media to find solutions to the pressing skills concerns facing our industry. Together, we can bridge the gaps and pave the way for a brighter future.

Friday, February 9th: Celebration Friday

As National Apprenticeship Week 2024 comes to an end, we’ll take a moment to reflect on our memorable graduation and awards ceremony held on November 23rd, where we celebrated the outstanding achievements brought about by apprenticeships. We’ll spotlight the exceptional accomplishments of our apprentices, including the numerous industry awards they have garnered over the past year. Be sure to stay tuned for a comprehensive week’s roundup and the eagerly awaited announcement of the winner of our ‘best apprenticeship in action’ shot!

We can’t wait to celebrate National Apprenticeship Week 2024 with you and make it an unforgettable week of recognition and inspiration. Be sure to let us know  at training@bpif.org.uk how you will be engaging in National apprenticeship week

Together, let’s build a brighter future for print, through apprenticeships!
