Last year, hundreds of businesses across the country took part in Scottish Apprenticeship Week. Employers, apprentices, training providers, colleges, councils, schools and other partners all played their part.

We want 2018 to be even bigger - and taking part is easy. Here are some suggestions of how you can get involved, alongside some examples from last year. Remember to tell us what you're planning and we'll promote it through our web and social channels.

CalMac apprentices celebrated a year of firsts as part of the Scottish Apprenticeship Week.
