The Society

The National Society of Apprentices was formally launched in February 2014. We are working with more than 120 training providers and employers, representing over 150,000 apprentices from across all sectors and industries, across the whole of the UK.

We’d like to thank our partner employers, trade unions, colleges and training providers for supporting their apprentices to participate in the society and promoting our recent travel research.

Membership of the society is free to training providers, colleges and employers but we think it’s important to be honest about money. The society is funded by the Apprentice Extra card. A society for apprentices, run by apprentices and paid for by apprentices.
