Northern Ireland Apprenticeship Week 2021 has arrived!
If you have wondered what apprenticeships are available, what they involve, what the different levels mean and how you can apply for one, here is an excellent ten minute presentation from South Eastern Regional College (SERC) which provides lots of useful information about apprenticeships of all levels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fat9nBqTBHg.
A range of virtual events and online information are available all this week – see https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/apprenticeship-week-events for an entire list and the document linked below for a summary of some that might be of particular interest to St Mary’s students and parents.
Today, SERC’s Apprenticeship team is hosting an ‘Ask me anything’ online event for potential apprenticeships and their parents at 5pm.
