It’s officially National Apprenticeship Week 2019, and we are here to celebrate all the fantastic opportunities that apprenticeships can offer.
The 12th annual National Apprenticeship Week, which runs from Monday 4th to Friday 8th March, is an annual celebration that brings together the whole apprenticeship community to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy.
The theme for this year’s National Apprenticeship Week is ‘Blaze a Trail’, that comes as the DFE (Department for Education, continues to challenge ‘outdated attitudes’ towards vocational, on-the-job training. The ‘Blaze a Trail’ theme will feature heavily throughout the week to highlight how individuals can choose their own pathway, based on their passion and interests.
The Engineering UTC Northern Lincolnshire, provides an exciting, employer-shaped curriculum that allows students to gain much more than their GCSE and A Level qualifications. Through expert staff members and unique links and involvement with industry partners from around the region, students are able to explore, evaluate and justify the best solutions to real-world engineering problems whilst gaining support and advice from a variety of different employers; from further education and industry experts to careers guidance. ENL UTC students are truly able to ‘Blaze a Trail’ by discovering their passion within STEM-based subjects that lead them directly to the front of their chosen career queue.
