The Big Assembly is back for National Apprenticeship Week 2020!

Join us for the fourth Big Assembly during National Apprenticeship Week. We’ll be streaming live at 10.30am on Monday 3 February and we’ll make the event available on demand throughout the rest of the week.

The Big Assembly is an online interactive webinar that you can stream through our online portal. We get some great apprentices, employers and more involved to bring you and your students together to learn more about a certain topic, for this assembly that topic will be apprenticeships. Throughout the event, you will have the opportunity to ask questions live through our chat facility.

The theme for the #NAW2020 Big Assembly is diversity. This means you will be able to hear first-hand from apprentices across the UK who have overcome diversity challenges to land the dream apprenticeship that they are currently doing.
