National Apprenticeship Week (8-14 February 2021) was designed to raise the profile of apprenticeships and to celebrate the important role they have in equipping people of all ages with the skills that they need to prosper in their lives.
Across England, employers, apprentices, business support organisations, learning providers, colleges and schools usually host events activities to showcase the achievements and benefits of apprenticeships. National Apprenticeship Week 2021 was themed 'Build the Future' and co-ordinated by the Skills Funding Agency.
As a large employer of engineering apprentices in the UK – with more than 400 graduates and apprentices in training at different facilities across the country – Leonardo is proud to continue our association with National Apprenticeship Week. We play an active role throughout the week in supporting this important initiative, including engaging with students through apprenticeship days in local schools and running STEM activities.
You can read about some of the young professionals already benefitting from our UK Apprenticeship Scheme, as well as see what opportunities we offer at Leonardo in our dedicated Apprenticeships section.
