The National Apprenticeship Show at Harrogate Exhibition Centre
13 February 2020 | Darren Smith
Stokesley School Students in years 10 & 11 visited ‘The National Apprenticeship Show’ at Harrogate, to investigate Apprenticeship Training opportunities available to them upon leaving school and beyond.
The event was bustling with activity, packed with loads of interactive stands from Employers and Training Providers from almost every sector of Employment. Students were able to ‘have a go’ at a vast variety of tasks associated with specific job roles, from laying tables and pulling pints, to avoiding land mines and horse riding!
Students collected a large amount of information about Apprenticeship Opportunities and felt that they discovered possibilities which they had never realised existed before. One student commented “We had decided to go along and see what was on offer, but never expected there to be so much choice, there is an apprenticeship opportunity for almost anything you can think of doing for a career and it’s really exciting!”
Year 11 Students are about to start making applications for their transition into Further Education, so need to consider all their options. A visit to the National Apprenticeship Show at Harrogate has hopefully given them more to think about and discuss with friends and family.
Stokesley School is holding a ‘Further Education Careers Fair’ during the school day on October 24th , all students in both years 10 and 11 will have the opportunity to visit and talk face to face with a large range of Employers and Training Providers, including Stokesley School Sixth Form.
