National Apprenticeship Week: 4th - 8th of March During National Apprenticeship Week, we will be exhibiting at the London Apprenticeship Show and Skills Humber, trying to encourage more young people to consider a career in construction and increase awareness of apprenticeships as an option. We are being supported by local employers on the day at skillsHumber to showcase the brilliant options young people have available to them close to home.
Also, between the 3rd and 9th of March, we are celebrating Women In Construction Week. This is all about improving the visibility of women in the industry and trying to encourage more women to join the construction industry. For Welsh employers, we're asking for your help! If you want to be involved in an International Women's Day school event, please read this to find out more.
