Careers Influencers

Post 16 choices are probably the hardest ones to make as we seek to equip our young people to take the next step on their career pathway.  Apprenticeships are a credible alternative to the traditional full time ‘A’ level or vocational study programme route.  They provide knowledge, skills, behaviours and employability experience whilst also providing the academic qualifications required for the career they have chosen.

However, the apprenticeship landscape can be tricky to navigate and knowing when to apply, where to get the right information, who is recruiting and so on can be confusing and frustrating.  With this in mind we have provided below some information to hopefully answer some questions and links to other sources of careers advice and guidance.

We also have a team who can support with any specific questions or support which may be required so please use contact us using the form provided.
