8 February 2021
“Build the Future” is the theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2021 (NAW2021), taking place between 8 and 14 February 2021, aiming to encourage everyone to consider how apprenticeships help individuals to build the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career.
The 14th annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, taking place across England, will showcase the impact apprenticeships can have on communities, local businesses and regional economies and how they all benefit from the impact of apprenticeships.
At Plumpton College we have a packed schedule to get you understanding what an apprenticeship is and what's actually involved and is it something you could do?
See our schedule below on how you can get involved with us on social media to discover how apprenticeships can build your future.
Launching on our social media channels as we delve into 'What is an apprenticeship?'
Tuesday is all about finding out what is involved on the job side of our apprenticeship programmes. We give you the opportunity to ask questions to a select few employers from horticulture, agriculture and arboriculture.
Also you can hear from The Royal Horticultural Society Horticulture Course Officer about working with the RHS and completing an apprenticeship programme at Plumpton.
Wednesday is about experiences direct from the apprentices themselves.
We open questions to some of our current and past students with an apprenticeship in the likes of agriculture, horticulture and viticulture.
Also hear interviews and advice from some current and past students.
Join us as we go live and talk all things apprenticeships, we give an overview on what Plumpton College has to offer and we tackle those apprenticeship myths.
We celebrate all of our apprenticeship students, past and present with their achievements and successes.
We hope you can join us as we celebrate apprenticeships and inspire you to delve into one yourself.

If you are an employer working with or wanting to start working with apprentices see our employer focused apprenticeship pages for advice, guidance and the programmes we have available.
Since the original 400-acre College farm was bought back in 1919, Plumpton College has certainly seen a lot of changes.
