Virtual apprenticeship sessions for teachers and parents

19th November 2020

We are bringing virtual apprenticeships sessions to you! On 19h November at 6:30, We’re hosting two sessions specifically aimed at parents and school staff to give them all the information they need to fully understand the apprenticeship pathway . And, thanks to the ASK Project, the sessions are free to attend.  Both sessions will be delivered by one of our expert speakers, and because we’re delivering on behalf of the National Apprenticeship Service, the seesions will be impartail and unbiased.

The session will aim to break down myths and challenge misconceptions about the apprenticeship pathway. We’ll give a complete overview on what the apprenticeship pathway now entails, the levels of apprenticeships available, and how to best support their children through the application process. Plus, there’ll be the opportunity to ask our expert presenter questions.
