Students get to grips with apprenticeships as they look to future 


Students are looking forward to life after Highfields thanks to Employability Skills sessions being run in conjunction with the Government.

Representatives from the DWP’s Support for Schools team have been visiting the school to deliver sessions to Year 10 students. The visits form part of the Citizenship curriculum.

As part of the sessions, students are being given important information about various different apprenticeship levels, as well as guidance about what to expect from their work experience placements in September and taking part in activities about making choices. They have also been given the chance to register on the Government’s apprenticeships website to explore the options available to them after school.

Mr R Oseland, Head of Year 10, said: “The students have been really engaging with the sessions and are appreciative of the information and guidance they have been given to support their decisions for the future.”
