The Devon & Cornwall Training Providers Network will, from August 2023, be delivering the Apprenticeships Support and Knowledge for Schools (ASK) Programme in Plymouth and Torbay. Funded by the Department for Education, The ASK programme is designed to give schools, Colleges and other educational establishments across England free support to develop and transform how their students think about Apprenticeships and other vocational routes.
A range of activity is available via the ASK Programme, including awareness sessions, CV writing, interview techniques and much more. You can see what’s on offer here
The ASK programme supports the government objective to improve awareness of apprenticeships, driving growth in applications, supporting progression, and increasing the engagement of young people, parents and teachers. There is a huge amount of opportunity available to young people to start their careers via an Apprenticeship. In fact, there are more than 600 different job roles that can be started via an Apprenticeship, everything from Arborist to Dental Practice Manager to Railway Engineer. New roles are continually being added so there really is something for everyone, and remember with an Apprenticeship you are earning and learning at the same time!
For 2023-24 the DCTPN is delivering the ASK Programme across Plymouth and Torbay and we are already taking bookings. Please get in touch if you would like to book your planning meeting so you can be sure to get your preferred activity dates in the diary! If you would like to book a session or activity for your school or College then please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org we look forward to hearing from you.
