National Apprenticeship Week 2023 – #SkillsForLife

Back to News & Insights

By Debbie Kyrkili – 8th February 2023

National Apprenticeship Week 2023 takes place from 6th – 10th February. This is a great opportunity for us to reflect on and celebrate the achievements of those within our Practice who have pursued this non-traditional route. The theme for this year’s NAW is ‘Skills for Life’. An apprenticeship can help individuals develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career.

We asked former Corstorphine & Wright apprentices to reflect on their experiences. We have valuable members of the team across both Architecture and Architectural Technology who have taken an apprenticeship pathway. Some joined us at 16 years of age, and have been with us ever since, a testament to their dedication.

“The apprenticeship have me the practical experience that you can’t get through traditional education. This personally have me a massive help in my studies as a practical learner”

Joe Bateman

“Joining Corstorphine & Wright as an apprentice have me support and confidence in both my studies and professional career, completing recognised qualifications whilst gaining invaluable experience within the industry”

Sophie Perks

“It was daunting at first as I was 16 and hadn’t worked in an office environment before, however I settled in very quickly and have never regretted the decision”

Cameron Norgrove

Architectural Technologist


“It takes a lot of hard work and dedication just to meet the deadlines alongside practice and personal life, so the only way to achieve that is by being organised.”

Dan Calverley


Both RIBA and CIAT have extensive resources on becoming an apprentice in the Architectural Industry. Take a look at their websites to learn more.
