Apprentices Are More Employable!


Newsletter 10th February 2021

National Apprenticeship Week 2021

This week, 8th – 14th February 2021, is National Apprenticeship Week (#NAW2021) – a time for employers, providers and apprentices across the UK to come together to shine a spotlight on brilliant apprenticeships. “Build the Future” is the theme for NAW2021 aiming to encourage everyone to consider how apprenticeships help individuals to build the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career.

(Did you know that employers think that qualified apprentices are more employable than those with other qualifications.)

When it comes to fashion and textile apprenticeships Fashion-Enter is England’s leading provider offering quality training at all levels. Fashion-Enter’s Fashion Advanced Apprenticeships gives apprentices the opportunity to work for a real employer, earn a real salary whilst gaining valuable workplace skills, experience and ultimately an accredited qualification. Anyone living in England, over 16-years old and not in full-time education can apply to be an apprentice in the fashion industry.
