On 6th March, a group of Year 12 and Year 13 students from Mascalls Academy attended The National Apprenticeship Show at Sandown Park Racecourse in Esher, Surrey.
Future Career Aspirations
This annual event provided the opportunity for students to meet a large range of employers, colleges, universities and providers offering apprenticeship programmes. With a wide range of job areas including accountancy, business and management, construction, care, sport, banking, hospitality, engineering and the uniformed services to name a few, the students were able to ask questions and make contacts to support them with their future career ideas and aspirations.
The students found the event extremely useful giving them alternatives to Higher Education and information regarding Degree Apprenticeships. They came away enthused and full of ideas about possible options beyond Sixth Form with one student stating:
“I feel as though the trip has made me more educated about the opportunities in my future, and has helped me to start settling on what I wish to do with my life. I’m very much more informed on the possible options, and appreciate how each company tried to communicate to us in a fun and engaging way”
