Information events and inspiring stories form National Apprenticeship Week celebrations
Walsall College is celebrating National Apprenticeship Week 2023 (6-12 February) by showcasing how apprenticeship skills are for life.
Rachael Smith, Director of Apprenticeships and Work-based Learning at the college said: “It’s very much the case that the knowledge and experience you gain as an apprentice will carry you throughout your career. They also help future proof businesses by developing a talented workforce. This is something our expert staff will be demonstrating throughout National Apprenticeship Week 2023 along with our employer partners, current and former apprentices.”
Online events about Apprenticeships are taking place as follows:
- Discover Apprenticeships – Monday 6th February, 8.30am-9.15am : a webinar for school leavers, parents, careers and jobs advisors exploring Apprenticeships for the first time and/or who wish to know about training opportunities available and what they can lead to.
