National Apprentice Week at TradePoint

National Apprenticeship Week 2016 runs from the 14th to the 18th of March, and has been designed by the National Apprenticeship Service to ‘celebrate apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.’ Government figures show that 86% of people who become an apprentice stay in work afterwards, while 96% of companies who employ an apprentice see them as beneficial to their business.

To support this week-long celebration, TradePoint have put together an essential ‘tips and advice for skilled trade apprentices’ guide, packed with loads of useful information that could be handy for those looking to apply for one of a range of apprenticeships or those just about to start one.

  • How to make the most of your apprenticeship

  • Advice from successful apprentices and experienced professionals

  • Useful telephone numbers and websites
