The theme for the 12th annual National Apprenticeship Week is “Blaze a Trail”. Through this year’s theme, we want to showcase how apprenticeships bring new energy and passion into our organisation.
Apprenticeships are a great path for people at any stage of their career from those starting out, to those re-entering the workforce, or those wanting to re-skill or change careers.
The University actively supports National Apprenticeship week and have planned an action packed week this year.
- Monday 4 Mar 19 – Taking part in an “Apprenticeship Live Broadcast” between 13:30 and 14:00. Apprenticeships LIVE is a live streamed event that broadcasts (via the internet) across the country wanting to schools, colleges and individuals wanting find out more about apprenticeships and the exciting developments happening within our sector. This live event will focus on the apprenticeship programme at the University of Exeter and will feature some apprentices and a recruiter who will share their stories and provide advice on the application process. You will also be invited to ask questions before and throughout the interactive broadcast. Register online now at https://learnliveuk.com/apprenticeships-live-with-the-university-of-exeter/.
