For many students, the cost of undertaking a degree can be a deterrence towards attending university. Apprenticeships offer a route into employment, which will see you mix on-the-job training, with theory based university or college learning. They are a great way for you to learn the skills and strengths needed for your chosen career, whilst also gaining nationally recognised qualifications, many of which are the equivalent to undertaking a degree at university. As part of the LAT16, Wilmington Academy students benefit from Trust sponsored events such as the higher apprenticeship evening, which gives students and parents the opportunity to gain an overview of the types of apprenticeships available, as well as tips on where to find opportunities and how to successfully apply.
At Wilmington Academy Post 16, we additionally run events which target students who do not wish to apply for university through UCAS, or wish to enter employment after they leave us. Events such as Routes into Training, Skills 30:30, and Debt Free Degree, help to ensure that students are familiar with their options, and are confident in applying for apprenticeship opportunities. We also facilitate opportunities for students to hear from, meet, and speak to local and national based employers, allowing them to get a “foot in the door” of our highly competitive labour market. Our dedicated ‘Apprenticeship’ display also makes students aware of apprenticeship and training opportunities, as well as information relating to the current local labour market to allow them to make informed decisions about which sector to seek their next steps in.
All students have access to a multitude of apprenticeship opportunities through our partnership with CTM Pathways. The CTM Pathways resource helps our young people to make informed decisions about their next steps after leaving Post 16. Often those wishing to pursue an alternative route to university are unclear about the amazing pathways and opportunities out there for them. The CTM Pathways resource is there to make our young people aware of these opportunities, and more importantly help us to support them in the application process and making them workplace ready. All our students have their own personal login details to this resource which is available from: https://pathwayctm.com/register/.
