It has been a great week of activity across the country with lots of activities going on for schools and their students to learn about the benefits of doing an apprenticeship.

In no particular order….

1) Attitudes towards apprenticeships are changing…

Apprenticeships have always been the second choice for many students but attitudes towards apprenticeships are changing, but there’s still work to be done.

Although, the majority would still choose university over an apprenticeship. The full research can be found here
