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?

Inspiring the Future is a national initiative to provide students with the opportunity to hear from local employers and apprentices and gain an insight into the range of careers available to them.

Register on the website, and invite a speaker to help inspire your students.

Brochures and posters

There are a selection of brochures, factsheets and guides available for download and print when you register on the Skills Funding Agency brand centre.
