Academy offers amazing opportunities for National Apprenticeship Week

National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) was created to celebrate the success of apprenticeships. Now in its 11th year, employers and apprentices from across England will come together between 5 and 9 March to showcase the apprenticeship path and to encourage more people to choose this career route.

Dulux Academy are proud to be involved with #NAW2018 and we are always looking to build better relationships with colleges across the country.

As part of our investment in the future of the industry, we're hosting some very special events between 6 and 8 March 2018.

We're offering 50 apprenticeship training day spaces across our Slough and Ashington Dulux Academies to give young people a taste of the quality training opportunities that are available to them.

This year's National Apprenticeship Weeks coincides with Dulux Academy's second birthday, and so it promises to be a great few days of celebration.
