National Apprenticeship Week runs from the 7th – 13th February 2022 to celebrate the young people and businesses investing in individuals to help the wider business economy.

This year’s theme is how we will ‘build the future’ reflecting on how individuals develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career and develop a talented workforce for the future of UK business. We wanted to take a moment to celebrate and raise awareness of our current apprentices working to become qualified Electricians.
