BMet showcases skills-based apprenticeships throughout National Apprenticeship Week 2023
Anyone wanting to know about the value of BMet’s skills-based apprenticeships, can do so during National Apprenticeship Week (starting today) via a series of activities.
This year, the 16th annual awareness week takes place between February 6th and 12th and has a “skills for life” theme – reflecting on how businesses and apprentices can shine a light on the significant impact that apprenticeships make to individuals, businesses and the wider economy.
To showcase the many career-focused pathways that BMet has to offer, a series of positive case studies, testimonials and videos will be circulated through the college’s social media channels, in support of #NAW2023.
Among other things, creative content will include insights into journeys of apprentices and skills they have gained, employer features and experiences of BMet employees who have recently completed the new Level 6 Careers Apprenticeship.
Here is a link to a video specially created by BMet’s Marketing Team for National Apprenticeship Week:
