Derwent Training will be supporting National Apprenticeship Week by welcoming visitors to their training facilities in Malton.
On Wednesday 5th February visitors will be able to speak to employers and their apprentices about what an Apprenticeship is really like, have a look around the specialist engineering training facilities as well as receiving guidance if they wish to sign up to opportunities on the evening. There's no need to book - just drop in any time between 4:30pm and 6:30pm.
The theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2020 is 'Look Beyond' and is a showcase for the true meaning of diversity within apprenticeships, including:
- calling on young people to look beyond traditional routes into employment and explore the diversity of career options and industries now available to them through apprenticeships;
- calling on employers to look beyond traditional hiring routes and show about the value they already see from diversifying their workforce by employing apprentices
- calling on parents and teachers to look beyond old preconceptions around apprenticeships, building understanding of the true value they bring, and sharing this with young people.
Keith Smith, Director, Apprenticeships Group, ESFA added:
''With National Apprenticeship Week now going into its thirteenth year, everyone behind and involved in it must also 'Look Beyond' and consider how and where we talk about apprenticeships, to ensure that we reach all corners and communities of the country with this important message. Our 'asks' for the apprenticeship community this year will all reflect that ambition and we will share these 'asks' in due course. For now, I would like the many, many apprenticeship supporters - from ambassadors and apprentices to training providers and top employer - to get involved and start planning how they can help celebrate apprenticeships, during National Apprenticeship Week 2020.''
