To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what steps he is taking to provide information on Apprenticeship Week to potential apprenticeship providers and apprentices.

This is the fourth year Apprenticeship Week has been held, and it will take place between 7 and 11 February.

The National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) have been working extensively with partners since planning began in September 2010, and already over 100 events and activities have been agreed, with more being added every day.

I have written to MPs in England inviting them to get involved. So far, 75 have responded saying they would like to attend events or visit apprentices in their place of work or training.

The NAS is also working closely with the media to raise the profile of Apprenticeships Week to ensure some of the key activities are profiled in advance.
