Partner toolkits now available for National Apprenticeship Week

The toolkits outline the theme for the week, share interesting facts about apprenticeships, and also give you advice and ideas about things you can do – such as holding events, getting your local MP involved in your activities, requesting a speaker from the Agency, or using social media more effectively.

There are toolkits especially created for all our stakeholders, so download whichever one is most useful to you – whether you are a college or training organisation; a school; a trade organisation; an apprentices (or former apprentice) or a business.
