Next steps for employability – Years 10 to 13 – Apprenticeships

Over the coming weeks during June 2020, we will be exploring the exciting world of apprenticeships in a little more detail, and we are very pleased to be working with Aspire Learning who deliver the ASK programme of apprenticeship awareness and information.

Because of the current COVID-19 situation, the programme has been re-engineered to be delivered remotely through on-demand assemblies and a series of sign-up interactive webinars which enable students to act on advice and ask questions in a friendly, no pressure environment. These sessions will be exclusive to Burgate students and moderated by a member of Burgate staff.
