How do we do this?

Apprenticeships Brokerage: 

  • Working with your employer engagement team we will identify and prepare students for apprenticeship vacancies and we will also identify new, additional employers offering apprenticeships delivery to your centre.

Work Experience Brokerage: 

  • Working with your academic and student support teams within the requirements of the Study Programme, we will prepare your 16-18 year old learners for work experience and broker for them a range of suitable placement opportunities (paid and unpaid) with local employers.
