NATIONAL APPRENTICESHIP WEEK 2022
BPIF Training loved celebrating National Apprenticeship Week where we hosted a range of events and webinars, exploring how individuals and employers can get more involved in apprenticeships. There were opportunities to recognise past and present apprentices’ achievements and we heard their experiences on courses in the industry. Plus, we found out more about careers in print, apprenticeship funding and recruitment and apprentice vacancies.
