Do parents know about apprenticeships?
With a number of new apprenticeships on the scene, young people can now get paid to train for highly skilled work straight from school or college – and even work towards a degree on some schemes. Parents and students can understand what's out there by exploring these links:
Advanced apprenticeships – Start with GCSEs from age 16 and train as a chef, IT technician or digital marketer.
Higher apprenticeships – When you leave education at 18, train for skilled jobs in industries from finance to broadcasting. Some courses even offer the chance to do a degree!
Degree apprenticeships – Complete a university degree while training for a highly skilled profession such as aerospace engineering or laboratory science.
