National Apprenticeship Week 2018

National Apprenticeship Week is taking place on 5 – 9 March.  This year’s theme is Apprenticeships Work to showcase how apprenticeships work for individuals, employers, local communities and the wider economy. 

At the Association of Colleges (AoC), we are focusing on how ‘Colleges make Apprenticeships Work’.  We already know that colleges are crucial to the delivery of apprenticeships, we want this to be highlighted throughout the week.

Alongside our activities, you can access official National Apprenticeship Week messages via


Toolkit - social media activity

We have created a toolkit that includes an overview of the activities we will be doing in the national office.  We would encourage colleges across the country to get involved with these to complement any activities you already have planned.
