National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) 2020 runs from 3 - 9 February 2020.

The theme of NAW 2020 is #LookBeyond, asking employers and colleagues to celebrate the diversity and value that apprenticeships bring to businesses and local communities.

At Sodexo, you make the difference – we know this because of the amazing work you do every day.

Did you know that in the last in the last twelve months, Sodexo has invested more than £2 million into its apprenticeship programme through the apprenticeship levy fund?

This is just one way we are demonstrating our commitment to nurture your talent. The levy fund means apprenticeship opportunities truly are available to everyone in any role and at any level*.

The apprenticeship programme grows year-on-year, with more opportunities being added to tailor the process wherever possible. Sodexo now offers more than 50 different types of qualifications. This means that even if you have existing qualifications, there will be an option available to you.

To give you the easiest route to start your apprenticeship journey, a simple registration form has been created. The form can be completed by managers and employees wishing to register interest for more information from one of Sodexo’s trusted apprenticeship providers.

Throughout NAW 2020, we would like you to show your apprentice appreciation by sharing your experiences and successes on social media. You can also head over to our career blogs to read more from people across the business, and discover why becoming an apprentice is so rewarding.
