An apprenticeship combines working and earning money with training at a college to obtain qualifications. There are over 250 different types of apprenticeship available ranging from hairdressing to accountancy. At age 16, students can do an apprenticeship at Level 2 (Intermediate) or Level 3 (Advanced). An apprenticeship can lead on to a Higher Apprenticeship or a Degree-level Apprenticeship.
Students can find out more and search for apprenticeships on the government apprenticeships website https://www.gov.uk/apprenticeships-guide.
Year 11 students are regularly sent details about the latest local apprenticeship opportunities. This information is sent to their Catmose College email accounts.
