It's National Apprenticeship Week!

It's National Apprenticeship Week!

Posted by Jenny Tong |  1st March 2019

In the spirit of National Apprenticeship Week, both Rathbone Training and Intraining are proud to shine a spotlight on all the hardworking apprentices we’ve worked with in the past year. Since this time last February, Rathbone Training and Intraining have successfully placed a total of 710 young people into apprenticeships!


As one of the UK’s leading apprenticeship providers, we’re delighted to highlight some of our excellent achievements over the last year:

  • 1000 apprenticeship vacancies filled as of November 2018
  • Yearly repeat business with the Office of Nuclear Regulation due to the high quality of service we provide
  • A large number of apprentices places in large organisations including Cortel, NHS, Bunzl, Total Processing, MDA and Chelmsford Council

Partnerships and Collaboration projects

Rathbone Training and Intraining have worked extremely hard on projects with large reputable companies as well as local communities over the past year including: Tesco, NHS, Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR), Health and Safety Executive (HHSE) and Bunzl.

Marking the 400th Apprenticeship Standard

In February, the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) officially approved their 400th apprenticeship standard! This marks a fantastic milestone for apprenticeships in the UK and shows the impact that they can have on anybody aspiring to reach their goals as well as to the businesses they serve. Education Secretary Damian Hinds said:

“We are seeing the apprenticeship system in this country come of age, with leading employers waking up to the benefits apprenticeships can bring.”

The standard approved was for the Fashion Studio assistant apprenticeship, which came at a perfect time for the London Fashion Week but also for us to celebrate the 400th apprenticeship standard on National Apprenticeship Week! New apprenticeship standards are developed by the trailblazer group of employers with support from the IfATE.
