Whitehat Apprenticeships

Year 12 and some year 13 students from Wilmington Academy participated in a Routes into Training event this week to learn about onward career progression and training possibilities within a number of sectors.

Guests to the academy who elaborated upon possible pathways after Wilmington Academy were:

Whitehat Apprenticeships

Mace Construction

The Electrical Contractors Association

The British Army

A4G Accountants

LAT Train to Teach and Apprenticeships


Presentations

The session began by students hearing a short presentation from each guest on their organisation and opportunities afforded to school leavers. All presentations were well delivered and highly informative.

In the case of Whitehat Apprenticeships, delegate Yasmine dispelled the many myths surrounding apprenticeships whilst Army delegate, Paul, spoke about the large number of travel and sporting opportunities that he has enjoyed during his service.

Students then took the opportunity to visit each delegate at a stand to discuss one to one what such a pathway could offer them.

Sincere thanks to our guests for their active participation and for assisting in giving Wilmington Academy such an extensive careers programme.
