Career Bulletin - Feb 2021

Love, love, love apprenticeships!

With Valentine’s Day and National Apprenticeship Week 2021 #NAW21 just around the corner, we thought you’d LOVE to hear about how we can support you into an apprenticeship!

You’ll need to know where to look! With excellent links to local training providers we can ensure you find out about new vacancies as they become available


You’ll need a strong CV. You can work with your adviser to put together the best CV possible to improve your chances of getting an apprenticeship. Need support filling in an application form? No problem. Anything careers related, we are here for you


Worried about having an interview? We can offer support to help you prepare and even set up a mock video interview if you need it!


We can access the Moving UP Fund to help you progress – if something is stopping you from progressing into an apprenticeship (or even college or training) we can help – perhaps you need clothes for an interview or a travel pass to get to your first week on the job? Let us know; you could benefit from the Moving UP fund....
