In the UK, nearly a million people are engaged in apprenticeships, marking a significant opportunity for individuals to embark on lifelong careers right at the start of their working lives.
Today, apprenticeships have evolved to offer more than ever before. They are not only a valuable avenue for newcomers to gain work experience, but also an opportunity for individuals to pursue a degree while working. Furthermore, apprenticeships have become a compelling option for up-skilling or transitioning to new roles, with 45% of new apprentices being over the age of 25. ‘Apprenticeships: Pathway to Success’ will demonstrate how apprenticeships are a key gateway for lifelong careers, education, and skills development.
