Apprenticeships are one of the options open to you after you finish school. There are thousands of programmes on offer – spanning over 1,500 job roles. National Apprenticeship Week runs between 14-18 March and to celebrate, we’re giving away an iPad Air to one lucky person who can suggest a new apprenticeship subject that isn’t already on offer.
