As a teacher you’ll be focused on ensuring your students achieve the best grades possible and preparing them for the future.
But what does that future look like? What will they go on to do? How can you make sure they’re aware of all the options available to them?
It's up to your students what they do with their future and where they go, but that doesn't mean you can't help guide them.
The government has realised the importance of apprenticeships, and has begun to place more focus on finding apprentices and placements in reputable companies, to ensure young people gain the skills they need to succeed.
With increasing fees, university is becoming a luxury that not everyone can afford, but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve an education. QA Apprenticeships offers a real opportunity for young adults to achieve academically, while progressing in their career.
In a recent study undertaken by QA Apprenticeships, we found that teachers felt they needed a greater understanding of the value of professional apprenticeships before they would feel comfortable talking about it as a viable post-school option.
So we think it’s important to provide you with all the information you need to offer the best advice possible. If you’d like to know more about QA Apprenticeships, you can:
- Preview a teachers information pack – If you like the preview then request for a pack by emailing Kavneet. It will include everything you need to know about QA Apprenticeships.
