APPRENTICESHIP SUPPORT & KNOWLEDGE FOR SCHOOLS

The Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge for Schools project (ASK) is funded by the National Apprenticeship Service, part of the Department for Education. The project is designed to give schools and other educational establishments across England free support to develop and transform how your students think about apprenticeships.

What that support looks like for you will depend on your establishment’s size, focus and requirements, but it could include an inspiring apprenticeship awareness assembly, apprenticeship application workshop, careers fair attendance, free resources, a teacher CPD session or a whole range of other options.

Amazing Apprenticeships helps to coordinate and facilitate that support – last year alone we helped over 208,000 students across 2000+ establishments get the support they needed. We connect schools, colleges and training providers in need with a National Apprenticeship Service delivery partner organisation in their area. Your delivery partner will then work with you directly to assess your requirements and deliver your bespoke support package.
