On 1st June 2018, the Department for Education published a combination of practical resources to help teachers and careers advisers offer information, advice and guidance to young people, about apprenticeships – 

It would be great to hear your views –  “how effect is this approach at grass roots level?” Here’s an overview of the content: –

A Teachers Handbook (12 pages) –

An Apprentices Self-Development Pack for Young People (60 pages) –  

The completion of the workbook can count towards the funded 16 to 19 programme.

The apprenticeship self-development pack for 16 to 19-year-olds who:

  • want to go into employment, including apprenticeships and higher apprenticeships
  • need support with progression options and those who are undecided about their future career and study options

Students can use the self-development pack to find out about the apprenticeships available to them so they can choose the right employment and education path.

The Department wants to identify 1000 exceptional individuals working in schools across England to sign up to the apprenticeship champion network. Champions will be given a range of free apprenticeship support for their school, share best practice and directly influence future campaigns. The apprenticeship champion network flyer contains more information and details of how to apply –
Delivering apprenticeship and traineeship information
The apprenticeship support and knowledge for schools (ASK) project will deliver apprenticeship and traineeship information to young people in years 10, 11, 12 and 13. The project is funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency and National Apprenticeship Service and will offer young people in England the skills they need to get on in work.
Film case studies and webinars

The amazing apprenticeship website contains free resources such as films and webinars for schools.

There are a number of informative films on the apprenticeship YouTube channel, including a series of sector in the spotlight films, which promote apprenticeships in key industry sectors (construction, manufacturing, IT, care, creative, finance, and professional services).
