Careers at Home

Welcome to our Careers at Home page, where you will find lots of useful links, resources and downloads to help you with your careers journey whilst during the lockdown period.


CAREERMAP - What is an advanced apprenticeship?

An advanced apprenticeship gives the learner an excellent opportunity to be in full-time employment while also studying towards a nationally recognised qualification, with a training provider or at a college. You might be expected to go to the college or a trainer might come to your place of work. Sometimes training is also done virtually, this is becoming even more popular due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 

If you’re considering higher education, they are also an excellent stepping stone for if you’d like to study a degree. In fact, you can even do a degree or higher apprenticeship which will enable you to gain invaluable work experience and gain insights into the industry while also becoming qualified.
