National Apprenticeship Week

3 reasons to get involved this National Apprenticeship Week – Monday 8 to Friday 12 February!


Wednesday 3 February

1. Meet and speak to employers and providers...

On Tuesday 9 February, our virtual exhibition hall will be packed with employers and apprenticeship providers, ready to answer their questions and give them a flavour of what they offer on their apprenticeship programmes. We’ll be joined by Barclays, Fujitsu, Virgin Media, and Rolls Royce, to name just a few – see who’ll be there

2. Hear what it’s REALLY like to be an apprentice...

There’ll be opportunities to see the world through the eyes of apprentices, with the ‘Ask me anything’ Facebook live Q&A on Monday, ‘Five apprentices share their experiences’ panel discussion, and more. Students will get a feel for what it’s like to study and work at the same time. See the full line-up.
3. Take part in live CV and interview workshops...

Thursday’s confidence-boosting line-up will help them focus on success! With live workshops covering CVs and interviews, plus ‘The application clinic’ and ‘Ten easy tips to ace your interview’, they’ll be ready to take the next step in securing their perfect apprenticeship.
A message from Ridgewood Sixth Form Director, Liz Thorpe:
''I am encouraging all of our students with an interest in an apprenticeship, to take advantage of this opportunity and the range of events on offer! It is a great chance to really get to grips with what this mode of study (and work) is all about and will help you to make an informed choice about what path you would like to take after Sixth Form.''
