Amazing Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are a great choice for students if they would like to earn whilst they learn.  They will still need to go to college and gain suitable GCSEs including English and Maths.  Year 11 students have had an assembly on apprenticeships.

Please find the link to the Parents and Carers pack below which explains about apprenticeships and gives a few examples.

Mercedes-Benz are currently recruiting for apprentices across a variety of roles, in our nationwide network of retailers and dealers. They have vacancies for Light Vehicle and Heavy Vehicle Technicians, Customer Service Experts and Retail Parts Advisors.

Students who may be interested in doing an apprenticeship, should visit Using your postcode, search for vacancies in the local areas and then make an application.  Vacancies are constantly changing, with new positions being added regularly so please do check back regularly as new positions may become available.

Apprenticeships are open to students who are 16 and over (they must be 16 to start the programme in September, so can apply whilst they are 15), and ideally students should have/be predicted a grade 4 or above in English and Maths at GCSE.  Functional skills can be offered where these grades have not been achieved.  Further information can be found on the website, as well as some hints and tips about writing an application.
