Career Opportunities & Experiences
When we receive information about open days and other events we will update this page to support you in choosing your career pathway.
All young people in the UK must stay in some form of education or training until 18. Post 16 options are that a young person must be in full-time education (e.g at a school or college), an apprenticeship, or part-time education training – as well as being employed, self-employed or volunteering for 20 hours or more a week.
Apprenticeships allow you to combine work and study by mixing on-the-job training with classroomlearning. You will be employed to do a job while studying for a formal qualification, usually for one day a week either at a college or a training centre. By the end of your apprenticeship you will hopefully have gained the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in your chosen career.
