Careers services for schools

Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge Programme for Schools and Colleges

We are the delivery partner for the Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge programme (ASK) across the London region, working with teachers, careers advisers, parents and governors, alongside other key partners, to develop and transform how students think about apprenticeships.

The ASK programme works directly with schools and colleges to assess requirements and delivers a bespoke support package.

Our range of activities enables you to meet your statutory duties regarding the provision of impartial IAG, specifically in relation to apprenticeships and traineeships. 

We will work directly with your school or college to assess your requirements and deliver a bespoke support package. What the support looks like will vary depending on your establishment size and requirements, and can be drawn from the wide range of FREE support activities available including:

  • Careers and parent evenings 
  • Apprenticeship awareness assemblies 
  • Application support workshops 
  • Teacher training and development
  • Careers fair attendance 
  • Resources and guides

 

A highly recommended service

94% of schools/colleges surveyed rated our overall service as excellent or good and 93% of participants rated the service as excellent or good.

"I would thoroughly recommend this information event for all schools, as a lot of parents do not know about apprenticeships."

 

Improving teacher knowledge around apprenticeships

The impact post-CPD can be seen with teachers too. The below figures show the percentage of teachers reporting an increase in:

Teacher feedback on the programme:

"Overall, it was delivered very well and gave our students lots to think about in terms of options open to them"
"It was really relevant for the students going off to college after the summer, so they were really engaged"
"Concise yet informative. Clear and pacey presentation, well suited to the audience. Guest speaker was excellent."
