5-9 March marked the 11th year of National Apprenticeship Week. It was a week dedicated to celebrating, encouraging, inspiring and emphasising the benefits that apprenticeships bring to people, businesses and communities.

The BPIF is the largest supplier of apprenticeships to the printing industry with over 550 apprentices, and since the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy we have signed up over 100 levy paying companies to provide training for them.

The BPIF celebrated apprenticeships all week. Here are a few of the exciting things we did...
