National Apprenticeship Week

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.

Apprentice Appreciation Week

North Tyneside Councils Employment and Skills Service are very proud of our brilliant apprentices and the difference they make to our work place and communities.

We appreciate the hard work that goes into the planning, administrating and delivery of the programme by a team of dedicated, qualified and enthusiastic staff. Apprentices are vital to our future – helping to shape our workforce so that we can deliver our ambitious plans.

To show our thanks we have pulled together a web page to shine a spotlight on the apprenticeship programme both generally and also from a North Tyneside Council perspective

Whether you are an employer looking for information on how to access the scheme or someone just interested in finding out more about apprenticeships the site ,which can be accessed below, gives you the details you need.

World Mental Health Day

North Tyneside’s Employment & Skills service are supporting World Mental Health Day, 10th October. This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’. On World Mental Health Day it will have been more than 18 months since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. In all countries, the pandemic has had a major impact on people’s mental health. Some groups, including health and other frontline workers, students, people living alone, and those with pre-existing mental health conditions, have been particularly affected

As a service we are offering a new suite of mental health and wellbeing training designed to support those working in local communities to promote and support wellbeing. Building awareness of positive mental health, challenges, or conditions which may affect wellbeing and strategies to support those impacted.

Get Up and Go!

This year, we’ve had to do Get Up and Go a little bit differently. So we decided to take it online, so you can attend the event safely from the comfort of your own home! We have a huge range of local employers available to chat to you about what they can offer you if you choose to become and apprentice, and our friendly Connexions advisors will be on hand throughout the day to provide you with any general guidance you might need when considering if an apprenticeship is right for you.
