This week it is National Apprenticeship Week (11-15 March). Across the country students and apprentices will be sharing their stories on how placements have helped them and why.
#247Apprentice is showcasing a week in the life of apprentices on twitter all this week. 10 young apprentices are posting / blogging and uploading images of their working week to really demonstrate a 'week in the life of apprentices. You can find them at #247Apprentice and #NAW2013.
In addition, the National Apprenticeship Service has launched a new app designed to make it easier to search for apprentice vacancies. Free to download from iTunes and Google Play, the AV Search app is targeted to 16-24 year olds and potential apprentices aged 25 and over.
The app is an extension of the Apprenticeship Vacancies database, which allows users to search and apply for positions online.
If you are doing something to mark National Apprenticeship Week, I'd love to hear about it.
