Nottingham Trent University (NTU) hosted a Nottingham Apprenticeship Conference to mark National Apprenticeship Week (NAW). The event celebrated the positive impact that apprenticeships can bring to employers, individuals, and the economy. The theme was Build the Future that aimed to promote the positive benefits that apprenticeships offer both learners and employers, and to spotlight businesses investing in this life-changing education route.

"Apprenticeships offer people of all ages the chance to earn while they learn and build a successful career, while also delivering the skilled workforce this country needs to build back stronger," explained Secretary of State for Education, Nadhim Zahawi.
