We’ve got the low down on all the essential careers events taking place this month, when the UK celebrates National Apprenticeship Week.

It’s the 11th National Apprenticeship Week this year, when the UK celebrates everything these programmes have to offer. As usual at we’ve got information on Intermediate, Advanced and Higher Apprenticeships and Degree Apprenticeships, CV and cover letter writing, job interview preparation, and explorations of 50 different industries and the apprenticeships on offer within them.

There’s also insight from school leavers already on apprenticeship schemes, so you can get the real story from people just a few years older than you.

If you’re feeling inspired check out our live jobs board for the latest apprenticeships – you can search for opportunities by location, industry and employer. This National Apprenticeship Week there’s never been a better time to check out what the programmes have to offer!

There are plenty of real-life events coming up this month too, up and down the country, to help you learn even more about apprenticeship programmes, like the What Career Live? and What University Live? show, which opens this week at the NEC, Birmingham.

The event is the perfect opportunity for students, parents and teachers to compare all the post-school options available, from apprenticeships to universities. The event is also launching at Liverpool’s Exhibition Centre later this month on the 23 and 24 of March.

Find out more about the UK’s top apprenticeship schemes with hundreds of companies including Mercedes-Benz, Superdrug, IBM, NHS, J.P. Morgan, Network Rail, PwC, Pepsico and many more.

Meet with the UK’s leading universities including Loughborough, Warwick, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Leeds, and Nottingham.
