The first fashion and textile apprentices in Wales successfully qualified at Gower College Swansea last year, with more set to follow this year. The College is the only pan-Wales, Welsh Government approved provider for Fashion and Textiles Apprenticeships levels 2-4, and has recently become the first educational partner of the UK Fashion & Textile Association (UKFT) in Wales.
To celebrate Apprenticeship Week Wales 2021, Gower College Swansea has organised a week-long programme of virtual events and activities from live chat rooms and information sessions to free webinars and YouTube tutorials.
One very important element of the College’s celebrations is the Virtual Apprenticeship Awards, held across Twitter and LinkedIn this week, and designed to highlight the very best of the best apprentices, employers and assessors.
Apprenticeship Week Wales aims to shine a light on the amazing work being done by employers and apprentices across the country.
This year, Apprenticeship Week Wales will take place between Monday 8 February and Sunday 14 February.
The annual celebration showcases how apprenticeships have helped both businesses and individuals from an employment and skills development perspective.
Due to Covid-19 many planned events, like open days, that had been scheduled have now been cancelled.
We know how important open days can be in helping you to make up your mind about your next steps, so we’re working with the Welsh Government to bring our open day to you.
