Schools and Colleges

Apprenticeships are an exciting new route into higher learning and earning for your students.


VocationsRole of schools and colleges

Schools are currently facing huge changes in curriculum and new increased responsibility for students’ progression.

OFSTED recommends that: ‘In every school the vocational route, including apprenticeships is given an equal status to the academic route’.

Services for schools and colleges

We have developed a range of services to enable schools and colleges to meet their statutory requirements and further develop good practice.

  • a monthly apprenticeship bulletin with all apprenticeship vacancies in the travel to work area, accessed through a dedicated careers adviser for every school in the borough.
