As your time at school draws to an end you have an important choice to make – what do you do next? You can choose to further your education via enrolling onto a college course, you may choose to go straight into full time employment, or you may choose to combine the two and receive qualifications and money whilst on the job – in the form of an apprenticeship.
An apprenticeship allows you to gain hands-on experience whilst also gaining qualifications, and a vast number of businesses and corporations are searching for young intelligent individuals to join them on an apprenticeship scheme. An apprenticeship can also help you to discover what you really want out of life, and the scheme also has the ability to help you make a stepping stone in your career path.
Apprenticeships are government sponsored schemes available for those over the age of 16 who have decided against enrolling on a further education course. The government understands the importance of apprenticeships; as they allow you to gain experience from working around professional employees who have been working within your selected area for a number of years. You will work with experienced staff who will help you to gain a number of useful skills relevant to your role – making you fit-for-employment.
At Careermap we are not here to make your choice for you, but we are here to help you find information regarding apprenticeships, college courses and job opportunities within your chosen area. The entire site has been set up to connect you with your next step in life, and to allow you to gain further information regarding local businesses, college courses and apprenticeship schemes.
We understand that making your choice can be extremely difficult, but we are here to offer a helping hand. By simply inputting your location of choice you will then be presented with a number of ‘pins’ which show all of the opportunities available within your selected area. The pins have been colour coded, and the drop down menu named ‘What do the pins mean’ will give you a clear understanding of exactly what you have discovered.
Our site has been made simple and easy to use and is completely user friendly. We don’t want to give you any more added stress; we aim to provide you with a smooth and efficient service, and we believe that is exactly what we have achieved.
