Monday 3 February to Sunday 9 February sees National Apprenticeship Week take place across the UK, with this year's theme, 'Look Beyond' urging potential apprentices and employers to see past the traditional apprenticeship stereotypes.
In this vlog, we discuss the great variety of apprenticeship opportunities here in Oxfordshire, a county with strengths in numerous sectors, offering the chance for an unrivalled 'on-the-job' learning experience.
The Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards offer a vital opportunity for the county's apprenticeship stars to gain the recognition they deserve, with the awards dinner on Thursday 2 April set to crown winners across categories including Intermediate, Advanced and Higher/Degree Apprentices of the Year, along with a School Award and various Employer of the Year categories.
The awards committee will be announcing finalists of the awards shortly.
If you are a business considering employing an apprentice, our Skills for Business Programme can support you in finding out more and helping you understand the process.
