National Apprenticeship Week 2023

Launching our Apprenticeship Matching Service

We celebrated the 16th National Apprenticeship Week from 6 - 12 February 2023 – a celebration of apprenticeships, taking place across England. This week brought together everyone passionate about apprenticeships to celebrate the value, benefit, and opportunity that they bring.

New for 2023 - our Apprenticeship Matching Service

Now with our Apprenticeship Matching Service we can help you employ the best future talent. This is a free specialist recruitment package for employers looking to take on a Degree Apprentice.

We will support you from vacancy to appointment, guiding and supporting you through the recruitment process. We’ll find you the best talent to maximise your business’s potential and identify the candidate’s technical and motivational ability, whilst ensuring that they align with your company values. This will assist with your recruitment strategy by saving you time, money, and resources.

We will put you in contact with future apprentices across all ages, widening participation and recruiting local talent, helping them with employment and education opportunities. This will enhance your workforce, growing your business so that you gain that competitive advantage.

We showed the impact our Degree Apprenticeships can have on communities, local businesses, and regional economies and how they all benefit from their impact.

We held two free events on our Preston and Burnley campuses about the benefits of taking on an apprentice and our new Apprenticeship Matching Service.
