UK National Apprentice Week 2019

In the past year our 2000 apprentices working on engineering and technology programmes across the UK have won more awards than ever before.
We are proud of their achievements and the contribution they make to our business and their communities and this National Apprentice Week, we’ll be coming together with other employers to celebrate the success of apprenticeships; highlighting their benefits and challenging some of the myths and misconceptions.
 
This year’s campaign focuses on ‘Blazing a Trail’ – celebrating how apprenticeships help individuals and their companies grow and develop.  It also highlights ‘skills for the future’ – showing how apprenticeships help companies ensure their workforce have the right skills to meet future work demands.
 
Across the UK, our apprentices will be spending the week at careers fairs and public engagement events, delivering STEM activities to children, working together in charity action including beach cleans and grounds maintenance projects and shadowing directors of our business.
 
The highlight of the week is our annual BAE Systems UK Apprentice Awards where we’ll celebrate the best of our craft, technical and business apprentices from across our business, before we name our UK Apprentice of the Year.
 
We have a long tradition of apprenticeships and are among the largest employers of apprenticeships in the UK. BAE Systems was recently named #1 employer of apprentices in the UK on review website Rate My Apprenticeship and won the Macro Employer of the Year Award and the Recruitment Excellence Award at the 2018 National Apprenticeship Awards, recognising the business’ dedication to delivering high-quality apprenticeships.
