National Apprenticeship Week Theme: Build the Future

The theme for National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) 2021 is “Build the Future” which takes place between 8th – 14th February 2021. The event continues with the tradition of encouraging everyone to consider how apprenticeships help individuals to build the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career.

The 14th annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, taking place across England, will showcase the impact apprenticeships can have on communities, local businesses and regional economies and how they all benefit from the impact of apprenticeships.

As a result of the pandemic and many individuals relying on technology and virtual meetings more than ever, National Apprenticeship Week 2021 will be different, but just as exciting. NAW2021 will celebrate the motivating stories of how apprentices have helped business adapt and build during a difficult year.

To support National Apprenticeship Week 2021, individuals, employers, training providers and communities are being encouraged to get involved, to celebrate apprenticeships and how they:

  • TRAIN apprentices, and future proof their workforce and careers though apprenticeships;
  • RETAIN apprentices, gaining the skills and knowledge needed by the business, and seeing apprentices thrive, whilst having impact;
  • ACHIEVE a real return on investment from apprentices; realising the business benefits of apprenticeships, with apprentices progressing in their chosen careers.

A toolkit is available now to support the apprenticeship community with planning their activity for National Apprenticeship Week 2021.
Download the toolkit from GOV.UK.
