Engineering Council supports tenth National Apprenticeship Week

Published: 06/03/2017

The Engineering Council has published a special page in support of the tenth National Apprenticeship Week (#NAW17). Click to view the Spotlight On Apprenticeships, where Engineering Council Board Members share their Apprenticeship experiences and a handful of other former apprentices talk about their careers, achievements and how they discovered engineering.

Many engineering Apprenticeships now lead to professional registration with the Engineering Council. To read more about this, please visit our apprentices page.

National Apprenticeship Week runs from 6 to 10 March 2017 and aims to celebrate the positive impact that Apprenticeships and traineeships have on individuals, businesses and the economy. The week, co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service, encourages more employers to take on apprentices and individuals to choose an Apprenticeship as a ladder of opportunity to a great career. According to the Department for Education, after finishing, the majority of apprentices (90%) stay in employment, with seven in ten (71%) staying with the same employer.
