National Apprenticeship Week 2019

What is National Apprenticeship Week?

The 12th annual National Apprenticeship Week, which will run from 4 to 8 March 2019, is a great opportunity to highlight the fantastic opportunities that an apprenticeship brings to employers, individuals and the economy.

At the University of Derby, we are proud to be pioneering practical Higher and Degree Apprenticeships, designed in conjunction with employers to embed new skills and grow talent in the workplace.

We work with a number of high profile businesses including Rolls Royce, NHS and exclusively with the Institute of Quarrying to develop the workforce and to shape the future of their organisations.
