The National Apprenticeship Week is co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service and is designed to celebrate Apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.  The National Apprenticeship Service is part of the Education and Skills Funding Agency, which is an executive agency of DfE. We coordinate and promote the delivery of Apprenticeships in England.

To join in the celebrations, we will hear from University of Reading, Doyle Clayton and Activate Learning on a wide range of topics, including internship schemes in the area and how these may impact your business for the greater good and the Apprenticeship Levy.  We are also pleased to welcome the Chambers very own intern Katherine, who will be talking about the benefits of the scheme and how it has helped her.
