Keele University is proud to celebrate

National Apprenticeship Week 2022

'Build the Future' is the theme chosen for the 15th annual event taking place across England, highlighting the benefits apprenticeships can have on individuals, businesses and communities.

New to apprenticeships?

If you are considering an apprenticeship but are not sure where to start? Don't worry, our Business Engagement Manager Huw has got you covered.

How are we building for the future?

  • We understand it is important to think ahead, Keele University has an evolving portfolio of apprenticeship programmes designed with employers, in response to sector needs and skills shortages. 
  • Our apprenticeship approach has been praised by Ofsted (Monitoring Visit, June 2021), demonstrating we have a solid foundation for the future.
  • We know the future is not static. The Covid-19 pandemic demonstrated how the closeness to the communities we serve, enabled our apprenticeship offer to reflect and respond to the changing needs of individuals and organisations.
  • We are growing too, our apprenticeship provision is made up of an ambitious and expanding team, who are genuinely passionate about apprenticeships and the impact of the programmes we offer.
