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 – https://www.gov.uk/guidance/apprenticeships-resources-for-teachers-and-advisers
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) – https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/713014/Teachers_Handbook.pdf
An Apprentices Self-Development Pack for Young People (60 pages) – https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/713015/Apprenticeship_Pack_for_16-19_year_olds.pdf
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 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).
