National Apprenticeship Week runs from Monday 9th March to Friday 13th March 2015 and celebrates apprenticeships, and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy. It’s a Government initiative for employers to showcase what they offer.

We caught up with one of our colleagues Ryan – who is currently progressing through one of our apprenticeship programmes. Here’s Ryan’s story:
