Options for School Leavers

Apprenticeships - a choice for school leavers

Every student in their final year of school has a choice about what they do when they leave. Apprenticeships are one of those choices.

We usually hold group sessions to talk about Apprenticeships with us and what they can mean for you. At present these are on hold and have opted for a short video and our Apprenticeship Guide for School Leavers instead.

During the video we hope you learn more about Apprenticeships in terms of what they are and how they work. This section of the website also tells you about the current and future opportunities and some of our fantastic apprentice learning facilities.

If you have any questions regarding your application for an Apprenticeship please do not hesitate to contact Admissions on 01384 363 333 or if you have a question about the content of the video or booklet, please contact Emily North on 01384 363 106 and we will be happy to help.
