Apprenticeships are an extremely viable option for students and should be considered as a Post 16 destination. Apprenticeships allow a student to learn whilst experiencing the world of work, and be paid too. At DSTC, we have a number of staff who are able to offer apprenticeship advice across the Post 16 and Careers team.
We firstly recommend that you read the government advice about apprenticeships (The National Apprenticeship Service) and the UCAS information available. Additionally, "The Apprenticeship Guide" offers some really good advice and presents a number of success stories and choices you can look at.
There are so many websites containing apprenticeships that it can be difficult to know where to start. We would always recommend you start with the "Kent Training and Apprenticeships" website and the main government database:
Below is a very helpful documents from The National Apprenticeship Service. This is recommended reading and will help you understand the range of Apprenticeships available.
In addition, we will always have a copy of the "Amazing Apprenticeships" booklet supported by the National Apprenticeship Service in the downloads section below. We have also included 2 very useful publications on male and female apprenticeships below.
If you have any questions about Apprenticeships, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org addressing your email to Mrs P Smith or Mr M Allen in the Careers team.
