It’s National Apprenticeship Week from 6 to 12 February 2023 – the 16th annual celebration!
The purpose of the week is to shine a light on the positive impact apprenticeships have on individuals and businesses.
The theme this year is “skills for life”, reflecting on how apprenticeships help individuals enhance the knowledge, skills and behaviours for an enriched career. Equally for the employer, the opportunity to support the development of a higher skilled team.

As a coach supporting many CIPD professionals on their apprenticeship journey, it is so rewarding and fulfilling to see the development progression of an individual in relation to their competence and technical abilities. Although the real magic and reward is to see the confidence growth – to see the passion for learning flourish and the courage to move personal development forward is just amazing.
If you are currently on or previously achieved your CIPD Qualification through the apprenticeship route, do get in contact and share what you enjoyed / are enjoying about your apprenticeship.
