There are a huge number of apprenticeships suitable for you once you have completed your studies at college. Higher and Degree apprenticeships are growing in popularity and you will receive support from a dedicated Careers Adviser to help you choose the most suitable path for you. This is complimented by a full-time Employability and Community Officer who will be available to you regardless of your chosen route after college and can be found in the Study Centre.
Over the duration your time at college you will be supported to research all the opportunities available to you after college, using tools such as www.startprofile.com. In addition to this you will begin to build upon, and learn how to promote your employability skills, which are highly sought after by apprenticeship providers, employers and universities.
We have built up strong links with training providers such as Midland Group Training Service and CWT who may come into college to talk to you about apprenticeships. Over the course of the two years you will be invited to visit National Careers events and our Careers and Higher Education Fair.
Vacancies are advertised on a designated notice board and you will be regularly sent opportunities by email. You will be supported with writing a competitive application, interview techniques, aptitude tests and assessment days, and signposted to useful websites such as Not Going to Uni and gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship.
You have regular one to one meetings with your Personal Tutors where you are able to spend time talking through your plans and we encourage students to complete both UCAS and Apprenticeship applications where appropriate to ensure you keep all your options open for the most suitable career progression for you. In the past we have had students secure apprenticeships with large employers such as BAE Systems, KPMG, Warwickshire County Council, and Jacobs Civil Engineering.
