Apprenticeships are a fantastic opportunity for young people when they leave school or college.
It’s an important decision for young people to take, and parents, carers and guardians have their role to play too, in choosing which route to follow. At Thatchers we know this can be a confusing landscape to navigate so we would like to invite parents to our apprenticeship information evening.
The evening, held on Monday 5th December from 6-8pm at The Railway Inn, Sandford, will help you understand what an apprenticeship is all about, how you can support your child and what to expect from an apprenticeship application process.
Emma Cox, Head of Talent Development at Thatchers says,
“We understand there is a wealth of options and choices to make, this event aims to help parents and guardians understand the different types of apprenticeships, the support you can access as a parent and will give the opportunity to ask questions about apprenticeships as a route from year 11 or year 12/13.”
On the evening the Thatchers Early Careers team will be joined by Western Training Providers Network who provide a wealth of apprentice support to students and parents, and Weston College an award-winning provider.
“During the evening we will be holding a series of talks from our partners as well as hearing from current apprentices and the Early Careers team at Thatchers Cider,” continues Emma.
This is an informal evening to which parents can attend any time between 6pm and 8pm. Find out more information and register your attendance here
Students are invited to register separately for Thatchers’ annual students/parents careers day which looks specifically at Thatchers Apprenticeship Programme which takes place on Saturday 4th February 2023.
