The Marlborough School Apprenticeship event we attended gave students at Marlborough and across Oxfordshire the opportunity to find out more about apprenticeships. They heard first-hand from businesses who have employed apprentices and young people who have chosen to do an apprenticeship.
It was a fantastic opportunity for us and especially rewarding to be involved with local students. We aimed to provide valuable opportunities and support for the students and look forward to meeting students in the future who are keen to engage with us.
More and more businesses and students are interested in apprenticeships but need some help to make sense of how it all works and how to get started. By giving the facts, busting the myths and using real employers and real apprentices to speak about their experiences, these events get the key messages across in a way that is much needed.
