In The Know: It’s #NationalApprenticeshipWeek!
National Apprenticeship Week starts on Monday and so, with apprenticeships at the forefront of the news, we thought we’d get on board. Here are some options that you and your child can consider as a good alternative to university.
Apprenticeship Insight Day – The Tech Partnership
Is your child interested in tech, but not sure where to go with it? This free event, on 9th March, will give young people aged 16+ the chance to meet some of the biggest tech brands around, including O2, Cisco and IBM. The company representatives will give advice and tips on the benefits of apprenticeships, how to choose one and how to apply. Registration closes on Sunday, so apply for a ticket here.
Events Apprentice Administrator – White Label Publishing
This is an exciting 12-month apprenticeship, giving someone the opportunity to help organise high-profile events. From conception to completion, your child would be involved in all aspects of delivering the event, from marketing to finding venues. If your child is 16 or above, this could provide an introduction into the world of digital marketing and event management, whilst earning money and an Advanced Apprenticeship. Find out more on the website.
Accounting School Leavers Programme – Grant Thornton UK
If your child is leaving sixth form (Age 17+) and is looking for an alternative to university, whilst still looking to gain qualifications, this 5-year programme could be perfect. They would get to work with one of the top accountancy firms in the UK, discovering a broad range of sectors, such as tax and audit. They would gain real-world experience and professional qualifications, establishing a base for a successful career. There’s even a salary and bonuses that come with it! Learn more and apply here.
GT Scholars runs enrichment events and workshops throughout the year, open to all young people in London. We have a free Careers Day coming up on Saturday 18th March and we would love for you and your children to join! We will have speakers talking about apprenticeships and university degrees and how they can lead to a successful career. Find out more and book your tickets here.
