Apprenticeships Roadshow 2021

The Transform programme is delighted to invite you to take part in our FREE Virtual Apprenticeship Roadshow Event this summer.

Blaze Your Own Trail

To launch your career you need qualifications and experience. Apprenticeships give you both! Apprentices get real work, in a real company, with training to get the skills companies really want and a guaranteed salary. Engineering, agriculture, fashion, food – if you can think of it, there’s probably an apprenticeship available. 

More information about apprenticeships can be found on the Careers East Sussex website.

Here is a handy downloadable guide


If you feel you’re not ready for an apprenticeship, a traineeship is a course designed to prepare you for one. Further information can be found here:

Apprenticeship Support & Knowledge for Schools and Colleges (ASK)

The Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge for Schools and Colleges programme (ASK) is funded by the Department for Education. The programme gives schools, colleges and other educational establishments across England free support to develop and transform how students think about apprenticeships.

What that support looks like for you will depend on your establishment’s size, focus and requirements, but it could include an inspiring apprenticeship awareness assembly, apprenticeship application workshop, careers fair attendance, free resources, a teacher CPD session or a whole range of other options.
