Nottingham Trent University (NTU) apprenticeships combines on-the-job training with academic learning. This leads to a nationally recognised qualification and provides apprentices with the opportunity to acquire the relevant knowledge, skills and behaviours to be fully competent and confident in their chosen area of work.

NTU's Apprenticeships Open Day was well underway as part of the UK's National Apprenticeship Week. The university was delighted to host both prospective apprentices and businesses interested in learning more about NTU's apprenticeship courses.

National Apprenticeship Week returned with a series of in-person and online events taking place at NTU and across the UK over the seven-day period. The week focused on the many ways that apprentices are having a positive impact in the workplace, with the theme of this year's week 'Skills for Life.' Held in conjunction with Nottingham College, NTU's Apprenticeships Open Day brought together employers, current and prospective apprentices, academics, course leaders, industry experts and more.

Featuring interactive sessions and live presentations, the Apprenticeships Open Day event was aimed at providing information across all areas of the apprenticeships journey. There was also the opportunity for those looking to pursue an apprenticeship to meet with employers actively promoting job vacancies.

Open to businesses from across all sectors and industries, the employers event provided practical advice on how to access the many tangible benefits apprenticeships can provide. NTU can help employers to find innovative solutions to their business needs, by engaging in one-to-one conversations with its team, current partners and industry experts.

This online discovery event for employers event was designed to help employers thinking about taking on an apprentice to find out more information about NTU apprenticeships. NTU outlined why employers should choose NTU as their training provider, highlighting the benefits of an apprenticeship and providing guidance on sector-specific courses.
