Apprenticeship Support & Knowledge in Schools: FREE Apprenticeship Assemblies

Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge in Schools is an initiative, commissioned by the National Apprenticeship Service and the Skills Funding Agency. The initiative aims to support the government’s target of achieving three million apprenticeship starts by 2020.

BL Training, as lead provider for the North region, are offering free “inspirational and engaging” apprenticeship and traineeship support to schools and colleges that have pupils in year 10, 11, 12 and 13.  They have enlisted the support of several delivery partners including All About STEM, who are dedicated ambassadors of apprenticeships and traineeships.

All About STEM are proud to announce that we will be offering this service to select schools in Cheshire!

The ‘Apprenticeship Support & Knowledge’ project delivery partners work with teachers, careers advisers, parents and governors, to ensure they meet their statutory duty of providing impartial information, advice and guidance on education pathways and career options, particularly apprenticeships and traineeships.

The support includes providing group assemblies and information sessions, signing students up to find an apprenticeship, apprenticeship application workshops for students and apprenticeship champion training for careers advisers and teachers.

Gail Dalton-Ayres, Director at BL Training said:

“It’s an excellent project and is free to schools. As well as providing young people with invaluable support about their next career steps, it also highlights the excellent work that regional training providers do in terms of giving school leavers progressive routes to employment and achieving degrees whilst earning a salary.”
