Potentially interested in an apprenticeship after school? We're running apprenticeship drop-in sessions on Monday 17th February, Tuesday 18th February and Wednesday 19th February 2020 from 10AM to 3:00PM.

As your GCSEs are coming closer and you're preparing for life after school, it's time to seriously consider whether an apprenticeship might be for you.

In the competitive world of apprenticeships, a CV is the first impression you give to an employer. If this is top quality, with no errors, you are much more likely to secure an interview in the future. Once you have attended the assessment/interview session, your details will be held on file ready for the date you leave school, allowing us to put you forward for apprenticeships as soon as one becomes available.
