Get the most out of National Apprenticeship Week 2020 by joining us at the Antalis Academy and come away from the day with new fresh ideas and inspiring stories.

National Apprenticeship Week (NAW), which this year is running from 3-7 February 2020, is an annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships that brings the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy.

We at the BPIF will be kicking things off on Tuesday 4 February by taking a group of our apprentices to visit the Antalis Academy. A centre of excellence for digital and printing technology, based at their head office in Leicestershire. It's a unique facility equipped with the latest digital kit offering live demonstrations and real life application case studies to help inform and educate.

Antalis are Europe's leading distributor of paper, packaging solutions and visual communications production for professionals. With a market leading range of over 14,000 products including papers, envelopes and consumables, as well as packaging, promotional and visual communication materials; and it's all backed up with a service that is second to none.

The event with the theme of sustainability, will run from 10.30am to 4.30pm.
