Take part in the Apprenticeship Support & Knowledge for Schools Project (ASK)
Did you know that you can achieve a degree through an apprenticeship?
Did you know the Government has targeted 3 million apprenticeship starts before 2020?
Did you know that there are up to 28000 apprenticeship positions available across England?
If you didn’t know the above you are not alone and All About STEM has been working in Cheshire and Warrington to help make sure that schools, colleges and their students are fully informed about the brilliant opportunities that apprenticeships offer.
In March 2017 All about STEM started to deliver the (ASK) Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge for Schools project (commissioned by the National Apprenticeship Service) which looks to work with teachers, careers advisers, parents and governors, to support schools and ensure that they meet their statutory duties regarding the provision of impartial IAG, specifically in relation to apprenticeships and traineeships.
The project works with school and colleges to ensure they are getting the support they need to fully promote apprenticeship by ensuring they are provided with up to date information and guidance about apprenticeships.
So far All About STEM has supported 18 school across Cheshire and Warrington providing teacher training, pupil assemblies, student sign up support, attendance at careers fairs and parents information evenings. What that really mean is that All about STEM has engaged almost 40 teachers and 400 pupils with the ASK project and that almost 150 pupils have registered on the Find An Apprenticeship website making an important step in ensuring pupils have the best information available for them to make informed careers choices.
We are of course always looking forward and already we have lots of events coming up in schools in the 2017/18 academic year but if you are a school based in Cheshire or Warrington and you want to know more, why not drop Dave an email and we will be happy to see how the ASK project can support your school or college.
