National Apprenticeship Week: The Gateway to a Skilled Future

Posted by Tribal Group

National Apprenticeship Week, running from February 5th to 11th 2024, is a fantastic opportunity to shine a light on the incredible value of apprenticeships. These dynamic programs bridge the gap between education and employment, empowering individuals to gain valuable skills and qualifications while earning a paycheck. But the benefits extend far beyond individual apprentices – they're a boon for businesses and the UK economy as a whole.

Apprenticeships: By the Numbers 

  • There are over 7 million apprenticeships currently completed in the UK in 2022/23. That's a staggering number, showcasing the ever-growing popularity of this alternative career path.

  • There are 692 different apprenticeship standards from the ever-evolving tech sector to the timeless craftsmanship of construction. There's truly something for everyone!

  • The average starting salary for an apprentice is £20,000 per year, a figure that rises steadily with experience and qualifications. Not only do apprentices avoid student debt, but they also start earning right away! 

  • Apprenticeships boast a 88% employment rate after completion, highlighting their effectiveness in preparing individuals for successful careers. It's a win-win for both apprentices and employers!
