Posted on 28 Jan 2021 by Tom Lane

The Manufacturer and KTN have come together to bring our readers another inspiring series of articles to support National Apprenticeship Week 2021.

National Apprenticeship Week 2021 takes place from 8th to 14th February, the theme for this year’s event is Build the Future. During National Apprenticeship Week we want to shine a light on the younger generation of the UK’s manufacturing workforce, profile their career paths and share their stories of how they entered the industry.

The Manufacturer, and KTN are committed to supporting manufacturing across the UK and highlighting what a rewarding career choice entering the sector is. Following on from our joint series with KTN on Inspiring Women in Manufacturing, we have turned our attention to the next generation of manufacturers to showcase and celebrate younger talent and ideas.

The UK has a diverse a thriving manufacturing sector and by undertaking an apprenticeship or other path into the sector,  it can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career. For employers it can help them to build a workforce with future ready skills.
