Supporting National Apprenticeship Week - February 5 to 11
In support of National Apprenticeship week, last week subject teachers shared video clips in lessons as part of our promotion of apprenticeships being an option post 16 and post 18.
The clips showed information and real life apprenticeship stories linked to subject areas.
In addition to apprenticeship information we cover as part of their careers curriculum this was a real opportunity for students to learn more about apprenticeships as a future pathway option.
Year 12 and Year 13 students in Tutor Time students explored what was available through discussion and online material. Some attended the Ricoh Arena event last week in order to explore myriad opportunities available to them in various industry sectors. On their return they reported how positive the experience was.
Student feedback has been really positive in how useful they found the video clips in:
- Understanding of areas they can do apprenticeships in.
- Hearing about experiences young people have on an apprenticeship.
- Seeing how the subject they are being taught can lead them to an apprenticeship.
