18 Nov Aprenticeships
An apprenticeship gives you hands on experience, a salary and the opportunity to gain qualifications while you work – even a degree. Al of this with some high quality, prestigious companies in loads of different industries – in fact, we were surprised at the number of industries who were offered apprenticeships.
Sarah, from WorkPays, came in to talk to a group of Year 11s, 12 and 13s about apprenticeships. There were equine management apprenticeships and midwifery and accountancy… just simply loads!
We thought that being paid to do a degree might be better than paying to do one. We took away a manual full of opportunities and are going to keep our eyes open for opportunities. We were keen to learn that they suit all abilities as we can start at level 1 or 2 and work our way up to level 8 which is Masters level.
