Employers & Apprenticeships


As an employer you may be interested in the information, advice and guidance we provide to our students within your field of work. We will be looking to host an Employers Event from 2019/20 every year in which we invite employers to come in, host a stall and chat to our students and their parents/carers in Years 8, 9 and 10. There will also be opportunities throughout our ECM days, ECM time and Assemblies in which we would welcome employers to come in and either talk or present to our students or work with them in smaller groups.

Our Heads of Department are familiar with the importance of CEIAG and ensuring it is embedded within their subject area, therefore if you wish to work with any particular subject area, they would most certainly welcome employer involvement to enhance the provision from an expert in that field. Our Heads of Department may also be able to inform you of students who express an interest in going down your career path.

The website should provide you with an insight into the events and opportunities planned throughout the year for various year groups, however, if you wish to find out anything more or you would like to work in an identified subject area, please contact the designated CEIAG lead.


An apprenticeship is a system of training a new generation of practitioners of a trade or profession with on-the-job training and often some accompanying study. Apprenticeship also enables practitioners to gain a license to practice in a regulated profession.

If you are interested in an apprenticeship, sign up to the National Apprenticeship Service which is a government agency.

The following guide to apprenticeships will help inform you on the facts and structure of apprenticeships:
