National Apprenticeship Week

The theme for 2022: Build the future

Let's shine a light on the positive impact apprenticeships have.

National Apprenticeship Week is an annual week-long celebration of Apprenticeships which takes place across England to highlight the great impact apprenticeships have on employers, people and the local community. It is also an opportune chance for LSE to celebrate our wonderful Apprentices by sharing their stories.

Celebrations will commence on 7 February until 13 February 2022, and this years theme is ‘Build the Future’.

LSE are committed to increasing the number of Apprenticeships across the School and have become members of The 5% Club, an employer-led organisation that works to educate and retain people into 'earn and learn' positions. 

We encourage everyone to consider how Apprenticeships can help build rewarding careers.
