Northern Ireland Apprenticeship Week is happening from 7th - 11th February 2022. The annual week-long celebration, led by the Department for the Economy, aims to highlight the important role played by apprenticeships across Northern Ireland by bringing together partners including local councils, employers, universities, further education colleges and private training providers.

Disability Action is participating in Apprenticeships Week by holding an online webinar on 'Inclusive apprenticeships – A Path to Careers for Disabled People'.


There will be two opportunities to take part in the event via MS Teams:
