Apprenticeships: resources for teachers and advisers

Resources to help teachers and careers advisers offer information, advice and guidance to young people, about apprenticeships.

Apprenticeship speakers for schools

Have you considered inviting an employer or an apprentice to speak to your students about their future careers?

The apprenticeship support and knowledge for schools (ASK) project will deliver apprenticeship and traineeship information to young people in years 10, 11, 12 and 13. The project is funded by the Skills Funding Agency and National Apprenticeship Service and will offer young people in England the skills they need to get on in work.

For further information or to request a speaker, please visit Amazing Apprenticeships and submit a request form.

Film case studies and webinars

The amazing apprenticeship website contains free resources such as films and webinars for schools as well as information for school governors such as a guide to help them understand their role in promoting apprenticeships.

There are a number of informative films on the apprenticeship YouTube channel, including a series of sector in the spotlight films, which promote apprenticeships in key industry sectors (construction, manufacturing, IT, care, creative, finance, and professional services).
