Amazing Apprenticeships Parents' & Carers' Pack October 2021

 

 Students choosing not to go onto Higher Education are supported in terms of ensuring that they are aware of the range of alternative options open to them. 

Above you will find a Parent Pack containing information for Parents & Carers of Year 11 & Year 13 students considering following an Apprenticeship route, which we hope you will find useful.  This is regularly updated.

Students will also have the opportunity to attend our annual Careers Fair which in 2020 was attended by over 30 local and national employers, universities and colleges and was a fantastic opportunity for students to learn more about their options both Post 16 and Post 18.   Amazing Apprenticeships hosted a talk to parents & students in our main hall, answering questions on all levels of apprenticeships from Intermediate up to Degree level.

2021's Careers Fair will be held on Thursday 7th October from 6-8pm.

Are you undecided on going to university or opting for an apprenticeship? Perhaps you are looking for some fantastic work experience / internship placements. Well we might just have the perfect opportunity for you.

With PwC’s Flying Start degree programmes you won’t have to decide between one or the other as you’ll get the best of both worlds.

You’ll get to work with world-class clients and be part of their highly skilled teams, as well as be able to still enjoy that university experience. You’ll gain a degree, and hopefully impress them enough to secure a graduate job once you graduate.

On Monday 4th October we’ll be hosting an evening event with PwC from 5:00pm - 6:00pm as they take us through all of their different Flying Start degree apprenticeship programmes in Accounting, Technology and Business Management, as well as all of their work experience and other student opportunities.

This online event is open to students in: Y11 / Y12 / Y13 / & Y14.

Some Facts about PwC:

For the year ending 30 June 2020, PwC’s gross revenues were US$43 billion.
