National Apprenticeship week

Can you believe the 10th National Apprenticeship Week (NAW 2017) will once again be taking place from 6-10 March 2017? A decade on from the first ever event, the week will bring together employers and apprentices from across England to celebrate the success of all things apprenticeship. The event also aims to encourage even more people to choose apprenticeships as a fast-track to an amazing career.

Of course at the CIPHE we champion the apprenticeship system, especially the introduction of the new Trailblazer Apprenticeships. In collaboration with the APHC the CIPHE has played a key part in the introduction of the new qualification and looks forward to working with the recently appointed Apprenticeship Board.

If you have never considered undergoing an apprenticeship or taking on an apprentice before, what are the things you need to know?

We asked the Government for some facts and figures to help you make up your mind. It may surprise you to know that:

  • Up to 28,000 apprenticeship vacancies are available online at any one time.
  • Apprenticeships are available in 1,500 job roles, covering more than 170 industries, from advertising to youth work and from environmental engineering to legal.
  • More than 2,600 employers are involved in designing the new Trailblazer apprenticeships standards.
  • 270 apprenticeship standards have been published so far, of which over 84 are higher and degree apprenticeships.
  • Apprenticeship participation now stands at a record level - 899,400 funded apprentices participated on an apprenticeship in the 2015 to 2016 academic year.
  • Nearly all apprentices feel that they acquire or improve their skills as a direct result of their apprenticeship.
  • Apprentices are most satisfied with the relevance of their training (89%), the quality of training (87%), their assessment on the job (86%) and the quality of feedback (86%).
  • Almost 9 out of every 10 businesses employing an apprentice report that apprenticeships deliver – including 75% reporting that it has helped their business improve the quality of their product or service.
  • After finishing, 7 in 10 apprentices (77%) stay with the same employer.
  • Nearly 9 out of 10 (89%) apprentices were satisfied with their apprenticeship overall, and nearly three quarters (72%) were very satisfied.
  • The majority (92%) of apprentices in work felt that their apprenticeship had had a positive impact on their career.
