National Apprenticeship Week 2022
National Apprenticeship Week 2022 will take place from 7 to 13 February 2022.
The annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, which takes place across England, will showcase how apprenticeships have helped employers of all sizes and sectors, and people of all ages and backgrounds. The various events provide an excellent opportunity to celebrate apprenticeships and bring the whole apprenticeship community together.
The Week will shine a light on the positive differences that apprenticeships can make to individuals, employers and to the wider economy.
Here in North Tyneside, we host the largest Apprenticeship event in the region where a wide range of employers and training providers come together to meet with young people looking to find out more about the apprenticeship system. We are planning to arrange a 2022 “Get up and Go” for Saturday 12th February – look out for details later in the year.
Adult Learner Awards
Running now for over 15 years, the Awards celebrate and promote the learning achievements of adults (16+, post-school) throughout the Borough who have overcome barriers and used learning to improve their lives and the lives of others.
2020/1 was an unprecedented year with learners and staff having to adapt to the difficulties created by the pandemic.
All learners across the council should be commended this year, for their ability to focus energy and enthusiasm on studying, whilst meeting the changing demands in their job roles with many having to work remotely with the challenges that brings.
In terms of apprentices, it would be unfair to pick out individual but, in some cases, the following quotes illustrate individual efforts
- Faye Challoner & Lisa Joyce – Their Team Manager describes how they continued to support colleagues and achieve their apprenticeship and how they are “shining examples that with hard work and dedication they can achieve both”.
- Olivia Barber – She described how she chats on the phone to customers, asking how they are because she recognised that at times “I might be the only person some of them have spoken to all day”.

A rounded experience
An apprenticeship is more than simply working and studying.
North Tyneside Council organises activities and excursions designed to expand and enhance the apprentice experience.
Participants benefit from these activities normally working as a part of a team to learn life skills which help develop themselves without the pressure of a learning or work environment.
The following illustrates a couple of recent activities organised for our apprentices:
