We're here to support the UK's hugely talented community of almost one million apprentices maximize our potential and be our best.

We're not just for apprentices, our work is also led by apprentices.

We'll provide the social and broader elements often missing from apprenticeship programmes. We will provide access to advice and guidance, help you build a lifelong professional network, and create opportunities for professional development. 

The Association is your place to come together with fellow and former apprentices to support each other. 

We're developing our full platform at the moment and will be launching it soon - so watch this space! 

Send us an email and we'll let you know when we're launching

Our work is led by our amazing Council of current and recent apprentices. They bring a wealth of personal experience and knowledge to guide decisions about the Association's strategy and focus.
