The annual week-long celebration, led by the Department for the Economy, aims to highlight the important role played by apprenticeships across Northern Ireland by bringing together partners including local councils, employers, universities, further education colleges and private training providers.

Through a series of in-person or virtual events, the week will showcase how apprenticeships can transform the future of apprentices and businesses.

Launching NI Apprenticeship Week, the Minister said:

“As our economy continues to recover following the effects of the pandemic, developing the local skills base is a key priority for me and a cornerstone of the recovery. My Department’s 10X Economic Vision and associated Skills Strategy set out how we want to equip people with the skills they need for the constantly evolving jobs market and build on Northern Ireland’s successes on the global stage. Apprenticeships have a vital role to play in making this a reality.

“Northern Ireland Apprenticeship Week provides an opportunity for everyone involved in apprenticeships, whether it be as an apprentice or as an employer, or just interested in finding out more about apprenticeships, to come together during a week-long programme of events and activity. The week will provide a great opportunity to raise the profile and showcase the very best within our apprenticeship programmes and the opportunities available and I would encourage everyone with an interest to get involved.”
