Many students up and down the country will be finishing up a rather hectic period of revision and exam taking, and many of you will now be thinking ‘what’s next?’.
Don’t sit around waiting for GCSE results day come August. There are so many apprenticeship vacancies LIVE NOW online, including on our vacancies page, which can move you quickly into the career of your choice.
Apprenticeships are a great alternative for those who need to stay on in education until eighteen, and don’t wish to pursue traditional A Level and university options.
They provide real work experience, giving you the opportunity to work with and learn from like-minded employers, make real connections with employers, and earn a weekly wage too.
You’ll still gain qualifications to boost your CV (without the debts of Higher Education), and will have a competitive advantage over others who are looking for employment, without the added work experience.
APPRENTICESHIPS AREN’T JUST FOR SCHOOL LEAVERS
You may be thinking that apprenticeships are for those fresh out of school, but apprenticeships can be studied by anyone over the age of 16 and living in the UK.
They make a great option for someone looking to move into a new career, and can refresh a tired CV with up-to-date, industry-specific skills employers are looking for.
DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT
Emily Rippon is currently studying a Level 3 apprenticeship with Rippon Homes in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. She said: “Since finishing my Level 2 NVQ I have been taken on full-time and I have now started working as the customer care admin assistance and receptionist. I have also begun my level 3 NVQ in Customer Service.
“I would definitely recommend this route, and for anyone looking to start an apprenticeship is to just go for it. I have no regrets doing my apprenticeship.”
