"It has been fantastic to see how employers of all sizes have gone above and beyond to ensure apprentices can continue their studies during this unprecedented time. The week is also an opportunity to shine a light on how apprentices of all ages and backgrounds are helping to transform businesses across the country."

National Apprenticeship Week 2021


National Apprenticeship Week celebrates the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy.

We at AWP are delighted to support this and celebrate the success of our brilliant apprentices. Pictured above are Jack and Ryan who have joined us recently and have already settled in well despite remote working restrictions! A large number of our employees come through the Apprenticeship route so it is very important to us as a business. To reflect this we are looking to strengthen our ties with Exeter College by developing our AWP Academy. We therefore look forward to many more joining the business and enabling it to flourish in the future. We are also excited to be a part of the inaugural ‘virtual’ Apprentice Expo with Exeter College this week.

Our apprentices are the life blood of the business and watching their careers develop is incredibly rewarding.
