Helping students on their apprenticeship journeys

Making career decisions

Our advice guides students to find out about different types of apprenticeships or school leaver programmes and confirm that a work-based route into a career is right for them. We even help them to weigh up whether they will ‘miss out’ at all by not going to university full time.

Becoming work ready

From developing key transferable skills to choosing and researching employers, we encourage students to be as well prepared as possible before they apply for an apprenticeship. This includes tips for attending career fairs and open days and suggestions for what to ask.

Applying and interviewing

An apprenticeship is often the first full-time job someone applies for, so it’s crucial that they are well supported in the recruitment process. Here, students can benefit from clear, reassuring advice on how to shine in applications, online tests, interviews and assessment centres.

Opening doors to long-term career success

We know that when students take the time to decide what suits them, learn about employers and tailor their applications, they are more likely to be a good fit when they start work – this has benefits for both you and them.
