  • Hi, Wellington School in Street are looking for a higher/degree apprentice or higher/degree apprenticeship provider to come and join myself at a talk at the school on Monday. The event is running from 14:30 to 15:45 at Wellington School TA21 8NT. Wellington is an independent school with a 6th form. If you are interested please respond to this message on the forum or email me at: Finlay
  • Hi, Orchard School Bristol have invited me in for an apprenticeship talk in November. I have advertised this event to the YAAN network but would also benefit from some contribution from employer/training providers. I will be doing half an hour on apprenticeships in general, latest opportunities, the process of application etc. Hopefully there will also be a apprentice ambassador present to tell their story. That would leave around 15/20 minutes for some input from employers. If you are interested in attending this event on 14th November 14:00 to 15:00 with the whole of year 11 then please reply to this message and we can have a chat. Thanks, Finlay (Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge for Schools)
  • Education and Employers are the project partner delivering the Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge for Schools (ASK) project on behalf of the National Apprenticeship Service again this year. We have been funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency for a third year to provide free apprenticeship support to schools and colleges, to support the government aim of having 3 million people in apprenticeships by the year 2020. This service is entirely free of charge to schools and colleges. I will be again leading on delivering the ASK project to schools within your area. We are able to deliver up to four of the below activities over two days to students aged 15 to 19, teachers and parents: · Assembly presentations · Have-a-go workshops (Interview skills, understanding competency frameworks) · Find an Apprenticeship registration workshop · Apprenticeship application workshop · Mock assessment sessions · Careers fair attendance with resources · Parents events · Teacher CPD session · Apprenticeship ambassador involvement in presentations/workshops We are keen to link some of these sessions with employers and training providers, and I will be posting appropriate events onto the forum throughout the year. Please get in touch if you would like more information about ASK. I am available at: The Young Apprentice Ambassador Network (YAAN) is also a great way for employers to engage with schools. Young apprentices are working with the ASK Project in many of our sessions with schools. They also receive training and support throughout their time as YAANs, as well as attending a graduation ceremony upon completing their apprenticeship. They promote their company and talk about their experience as apprentices.
