At Brentwood School we are committed to helping our students with any next steps that they elect to take after finishing their studies with us. The majority of our students will pursue Universities either in this country or abroad and for those students we offer excellent support in terms of UCAS applications and personal statement/ reference support to ensure that our students aspire and access the best further education providers. For some of our students, they do not wish to pursue the higher education route and wish to pursue their next steps in the workplace in the form of an apprenticeship.
There are multiple routes into an apprenticeship from the higher apprenticeships (giving students an opportunity to earn whilst learning on the job skills) to degree apprenticeships (where employers have links with Universities to offer students an opportunity to gain a degree where to knowledge of academia as well as the on the job skills are necessary to be successful). For those students who are looking to pursue an apprenticeship we offer support in guiding students to correct employers and sectors of industry as well as giving support in covering letter writing, interview support as well as giving practice for those students who are invited to assessment centres as part of their application.
We have seen over the past five years that the numbers of students now choosing to pursue an apprenticeship is growing year on year and we would like to support the students even more going forward. This is where we are hoping the Old Brentwood’s will be able to support us. We are aware that a number of our Old Brentwood’s work or own companies in different industries that offer apprenticeship positions. Our request going forward is three fold;
If this is something that you believe you could assist with whether that be any of the three options please do get in touch with the school and we can begin to organise this further and build a calendar going forward.
