Aug 18, 2022 | News

The Ladder for Staffordshire is encouraging those receiving exam results this month to look at the opportunities presented by apprenticeships as well as considering going to college and university.

Ladder co-ordinator Justine Johnson said: “You might be surprised at the career opportunities available through apprenticeships. They are not just for when you haven’t achieved the grades you wanted.They can be a viable way to earn and learn whilst being paid and getting hands on experience.

She said traineeships were another option. “If you’ve just finished school and you don’t have any work experience, traineeships are a great way to prepare yourself for your future career.

“They usually last from six weeks to six months, and are offered exclusively to 16 to 23-year-olds. Not only do they provide essential work preparation training, they’re also the perfect opportunity to gain the practical skills and experience needed to move onto an apprenticeship or job.”

Apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16 and offer the perfect opportunity to access work-based training.

The apprentice receives practical training in a work-based setting, an apprenticeship will give you the chance to learn industry specific skills and qualifications alongside earning a wage.
