National Apprenticeship Week 2020 takes place from 3rd to 9th February 2020.
This annual celebration of apprenticeships will bring the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy.
Hazelwick students will be participating in a range of activities – look out in next month’s newsletter for details.
There are a number of events locally that are taking place.
On Wednesday 12th December, Helen Mallows from ASK came to speak to all of Year 12, and a group of Year 13 students, who are hoping or considering applying for apprenticeships. Helen talked to the group about what apprenticeships are, both the pros and cons of apprenticeships and how those who are interested could research and apply. The students were engaged and interested in this alternative to university with a number of students waiting behind to ask questions. It was really interesting to hear about the different options students have to achieve their career goals, a real eye opener to many.
