National Apprenticeship Week, 7th-13th February 2022 - What's Happening at HABS

9c16305c 7b43 44d4 90bd 2282c68b4fcaThe 15th annual National Apprenticeship Week takes place between the 7th-13th February 2022.

This year, the theme is ‘Build the Future’, encouraging everyone to consider how apprenticeships help individuals to build the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career.

A range of activities will be taking place across England to showcase how apprenticeships have helped businesses of all sizes and sectors across England. Click HERE to find out more about national events.


Here’s how we are celebrating in school

We will be putting our students knowledge of apprenticeship to the test by getting them to complete this quiz in class: https://amazingapprenticeships.com/apprenticeships-quiz/. Try it for yourself and see how much you know.

Every day all students will be shown a new video about a real apprentice talking about their apprenticeship experience. If you want to watch these videos with your children at home then you can find them here: https://www.apprenticeships.gov.uk/apprentices/real-stories


Did you know about higher and degree apprenticeships?

These are a fantastic way for your child to gain work experience, a salary, and a degree – without accumulating any debt. Your child can apply for these apprenticeships and a place at university at the same time.

The latest version of the listing from November 2021 is available to download here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/higher-and-degree-apprenticeships

An updated listing will be launched during National Apprenticeship Week in February 2022.

Here is one example of a degree apprenticeship – The closing date for applications is Monday 14th February 2022.

The Government Economic Service Degree Apprenticeship Programme (GES-DAP) is a four-year programme. The degree apprenticeship offers your child the opportunity to work in a central government department or agency on some of the most important social, environmental and economic issues our country faces – all while earning a wage and studying for a degree in economics with the University of Kent. The course is fully funded so your child will not accumulate any tuition fees.

Apprentices will work in central government departments in London and nationwide. Once complete, your child will have an apprenticeship, an economics degree, and the experience of four years’ working in the Civil Service – putting them in a brilliant position to progress their career.

You can find out more about the GES Economist Degree Apprenticeship by visiting the website below: www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-government-economic-service-degree-level-apprenticeship


Continue the conversation at home - download the parent pack

It can be difficult to know how best to support your child with considering their career options after school. Try to keep the conversation ongoing, regularly asking about their interests, hobbies, skills and strengths, the sectors or types of organisations they’re interested in and how these might inform their next steps.

To help aid these discussions download the parent pack for 2022

A guide to apprenticeships has also been translated in:
