Share apprenticeship achievements on social media through #TalentWithoutLimits

Post stories of achievements on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn with #TalentWithoutLimits #ScotAppWeek20

Employers and learning providers can celebrate and recognise achievements of apprentices or work and activity to support them. Apprentices, past and present, can celebrate their own achievements.

Showcase the diversity, challenge outdated views and show apprenticeships are for everyone.

Achievements could include:

  • Professional achievement: such as working on a massive project or learning a new skill
  • Development achievement: like public speaking and boosting your confidence
  • Life achievement: such as buying a car or paying for a holiday. Get creative with your own words, pics and films

Remember to tag another apprentice or employer and encourage them to share their achievements too.
