The theme this year is Skills for Life.
Apprenticeships provide routes into a variety of careers in the NHS and are a great way to gain work experience and achieve nationally recognised qualifications. Read about how we are celebrating National Apprenticeship Week across Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes.
