It’s Apprenticeship Week!
All this week, employers, FE colleges, private training employers and universities are offering a range of virtual and in-person events focused on apprenticeships. These events will highlight the benefits of apprenticeships and provide all the information that those thinking of becoming an apprentice need to know: the levels and qualifications available, the wide variety of apprenticeship opportunities across different sectors and how to go about finding an apprenticeship.
The NI Careers Service has an Apprenticeship Week webpage with all of these events listed: https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/apprenticeship-week-events. They have also provided a short video which provides a very useful summary of the key points around apprenticeships: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CZBKV3ySe0&t=5s.
Any student or parent who would like more information about apprenticeships can contact Mrs O’Connor in the Careers Department.
