This Week is National Apprenticeship Week

The 12th annual Apprenticeship Week takes place from Monday 4 March to Friday 8 March 2019 and coincides with National Careers Week and International Women’s Day on the Friday.

This year's theme is "blaze a trail" and is an opportunity to share the benefits that apprenticeships bring to the Health and Care sector, local Communities and Individuals. If your organisation is planning on promoting apprenticeships in the health and care sector, raising awareness of routes into the Health and Care sector and roles that may not be as obvious, hosting an event or activities, we would love to hear from you and share your activities wider across the WYHEC network and our website in the future months.

Alternatively, why not use Apprenticeship week to submit a nomination for the monthly WYHEC Accolades?
