Thinking about your options after school?

With both GCSE and A Level results days coming up in August, now’s the perfect time to start thinking about your future. Of course, there are what might be seen as the standard options such as Sixth Form, College and University, but with an average of 23,000 Apprenticeship opportunities becoming available on a monthly basis, now’s the perfect time to get involved and kick-start your career within your dream job role.

What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a mix of on-the-job training with classroom learning, whilst earning a wage at the same time. You’ll be able to gain the skills you need for your chosen career path.

Apprenticeships bring with them a whole world of opportunity. Did you know that over 90% of Apprentices go full-time or into further training once they’ve completed their Apprenticeship? With our programmes ranging from Level 2 (equivalent to a GCSE qualification) all the way up to Level 7 (equivalent to a Master’s Degree), the possible pathways available mean that an Apprenticeship can supply you with the fundamental skills that will allow you to progress onto high performing roles and opportunities within your dream job. We’ll help you through every step of your Apprenticeship journey.

You’ll be earning while you’re learning, whilst gaining qualifications through your chosen job role. What’s not to like?
