    To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week I thought we could do something fun and run a competition to guess the correct fact about apprenticeships!

    Take a guess at the correct answer and
    one person who voted on the poll (and answered right) will win a £10 amazon voucher!

    Pretty easy way to treat yo'self

    Vote on the poll to get involved...

    The correct answer can be found on the apprenticeship infographic which is posted in a thread somewhere on the site...

    I was assuming it was coming from an article and was more actually interested in that, rather than just an infograph...

    EDIT: just found the infographic, so got the sources from there, cheers :yy:

    We've got lots of articles in the apprenticeship hub here which might be useful- we got a lot of our info from big companies who hire apprentices so some good tips in there! http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...pprenticeships

    Yeh, was just interested because when googling, there was a lot of disparity, so was wondering what the 'proper' stats were! Looks like it could be a useful forum to those who need it :yy:

    Stats are a fickle thing!

    Yeah it's pretty handy for applicants as they keep track of deadlines and meet other people applying to same apprenticeships
