National Apprenticeship Week takes place between the 3rd and 9th of February 2020.
"This annual celebration of apprenticeships will bring the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy."
At The One Point, we highly value investing in our team, whether that's through social events or training leading to qualifications to boost careers. We support apprentices wanting to take their first steps into Digital or Technical job roles, as well as apprentices wanting to further their skills with higher qualifications. To provide this training, we work in partnership with technical training provider, Baltic Training Services.
