Apprenticeships are the way our young people can continue their education/training whilst enabling them to work at the same time. By taking this option they gain valuable working skills and experiences while continuing their education and they start to earn their own money whilst doing this.
Apprenticeships come in a variety of types from Level 2 (which is equivalent to 5 GCSE’s) all the way up to degree level. The types of careers available vary greatly from practical careers like plumbing and construction to office based positions like accountancy and marketing.
We advise our students to look at all options for their education and training post GCSE providing both in-house and independent careers advice to help them make the right choice.
