Schools & Colleges
Schools and colleges play a key role in the decision-making process for young people and their parents.
However, we understand that distilling and advising on the volumes of apprenticeships information available can be a complex process – the Hub is here to make things simple by providing you with all the information and resources that you need in one place.
Apprenticeships offer apprentices the chance to learn job-relevant skills, build valuable experience and gain real qualifications that will positively start their career journey. On top of this, apprentices earn a real salary, have no fees to pay, and can enjoy the benefits of being a full-time employee.
Apprenticeships have changed significantly over the last few years and are currently developing at a rapid pace. It is critical for schools to keep themselves up to date and to understand how they can benefit all of their pupils and staff, regardless of their academic ability. From level 2 (intermediate) up to level 7 (masters) there are a range of different apprenticeship standards available for the vast majority of job roles.
Ready to start promoting Apprenticeships? Have a look around the Hub and take advantage of the resources available. There are a range of projects available that can help you promote Apprenticeships in your school. For more information, click here.
The Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge for Schools (ASK) Project
Funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency
The GMLPN are offering a range of inspirational and engaging impartial Apprenticeship information and support to all schools in Greater Manchester for students in years 10, 11, 12 and 13.
Depending on the schools’ requirements we deliver a combination of any of the sessions described below:
- Assembly or workshop providing an overview of Apprenticeships
- Registration sessions on the Find an Apprenticeship website
- Recruitment Process Support
- Teacher Sessions
- Information stands or presentation to parents at evening events
During the summer term of 2019-20 academic term we are able to offer some of these sessions virtually either as a recorded webinar or as a live interactive session.
Where possible, we have Apprenticeship Ambassadors to support the session thereby adding value for the benefit of the students.
If you are a school or college that would like us to come in and deliver an Apprenticeship session, please contact Matt Leigh: T: 0161 654 1508 M: 07530 075650 @: firstname.lastname@example.org.
