National Apprenticeship Week

This week is National Apprenticeship Week which is an excellent reason to focus on Degree Apprenticeships as an option after Sixth Form.

Degree apprenticeships are exactly what they say – an apprenticeship programme that leads to a full degree-level qualification. This could be a bachelors or masters degree, or an equivalent professional qualification. They usually take between 2-6 years to complete and time will be split between working and studying with a training provider. Not only will you not be required to pay towards the cost of the training, you will also earn a salary throughout the apprenticeship – so a great benefit.

Although it is a common misconception that apprenticeships are the less academic option for a degree, this is certainly not the case. Some great examples of potential apprenticeships include police officer, paralegal, degree nurse, civil engineer and nuclear scientist, or for companies including Rolls Royce, BBC or Virgin Media.

If you would like to learn more about degree apprenticeships, Mrs Hayes is always available to chat in the careers office next to the art department.
