This week (8 to 14 February 2021) in the UK is National Apprenticeship Week 2021. The annual celebration gives us the opportunity to regionally recognise the successes of the hundreds of Sodexo colleagues who have stepped-up over the past year to undertake an apprenticeship journey in the most unprecedented time.
“Build the Future” is the theme for NAW2021, focusing on how employers train, retain and achieve with apprenticeships. Throughout the week, we will be sharing stories on Your Sodexo and Sodexo_Net that shine a light on the success of our people through adversity, and the huge variety of opportunities presented by Sodexo Apprenticeships, showing that anything is possible.
We’re kicking off the week by celebrating our Class of 2020. From hospitality to HR, adult care to accounting, business administration to project management, our colleagues have benefited from a breadth of opportunities afforded to them by apprenticeships. And they’re taught at every level, too – from GCSE standard all the way through to Masters.

And, if you spot a name you recognise, take a moment to give them a shout out with a Recognising You card, or ask a question about their apprenticeship journey via email.
