This week is National Apprenticeship Week and celebrates the positive impact which apprenticeships can have on developing individuals, businesses and the wider economy and opening up career dreams for millions of people every year.

One particular area which is seeing a surge of development in the UK is the construction industry, with the high demand for more housing being a key focus for many city and district councils.
