National Apprenticeship Week 2023

This week is National Apprenticeship Week 2023 which celebrates the contribution of apprentices to businesses up and down the country. The theme for this year is ‘Skills for Life’ and recognises the quality of apprenticeships and how they have shaped the career of so many professionals.

In recent years, apprenticeships have become known for their comprehensive, 360 approach to education and work experience – rivalling a university qualification. National Apprenticeship Week is an opportunity to showcase apprentices and their stories to inspire others to consider an apprenticeship or a business to take on an apprentice.

Apprenticeships exist in all sectors and industries from finance, legal and tech to more hands-on roles in construction and manufacturing. At Twenty2, we have our own apprentice, Lucy, who works on our digital marketing and admin within the business. Next month, she completes her 18-month apprenticeship – something we are looking forward to celebrating as a team.

Lucy says, “being both a uni graduate and an apprentice, the difference between the two qualifications is huge. With an apprenticeship, your study is centered around your job role and provides a solid, practical base for you to begin your career. An apprenticeship balances work with study and takes away the worry of not knowing whether you’ll find a job at the end of it.”
