National Apprenticeship Week - TDA Business

National Apprenticeship Week

National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) is an annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships across England to recognise and share success stories, taking place 3rd-9th February 2020. 

TDA and partners are getting ‘Fired Up’ about amazing apprenticeships and are asking employers to join in this year’s campaign, highlighting the business benefits of apprenticeships to other businesses and showcasing their apprentices talent. For those not already benefiting from apprenticeships, it is a time to find out more and to start their journey.

‘Look Beyond’ is the national theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2020, celebrating the diversity and value that apprenticeships bring to employers, apprentices and communities. From highlighting the breadth of industries and amazing roles now available, to the talent and energy apprentices bring to the workplace. ‘Look Beyond’ will celebrate the true meaning of diversity.

Employers and apprentices across the country will be joining in National Apprenticeship Week activity, help us put Torbay on the map of activity by taking part!


Torbay’s local campaign for National Apprenticeship Week is the ‘Apprentice Takeover’. We are calling on all employers to showcase their apprentice’s skills and talent during NAW. E.g.

>Put your apprentice in the driving seat of the business for the day
>Apprentice as Head Chef
>Apprentice as CEO
>Apprentice leading a sales meeting
>Apprentice running an event etc…

If you have an amazing apprentice share their story on social media with quote, images and film, using #NAW2020 #LookBeyond #ApprenticeTakeover #FireItUp

Check out some of our local case study examples on YouTube: Torbay’s Amazing Apprentices >>
