What apprenticeships offer?

Work experience

Every student in year 12 has the opportunity to undertake a self-placed week of work experience in the summer term of year 12. This is a chance to bolster their CV, build soft skills and explore career pathways.  Our provision is managed through the unifrog platform and the relevant forms can be found [insert link to CAIG page]. Students also have ongoing access to Pathways CTM to support their career aspirations as well as personalised interview support, assessment centre workshops and access to an independent careers advisor.
