Sincere thanks to Rebekah Shaxted of KATO for coming to Longfield Academy to talk to year 12 and 13 students about higher and degree apprenticeships.

Within an energetic and engaging presentation, Rebekah talked initially about her own career journey and how she came to work for KATO, moving on to explain what the various levels are apprenticeship are:

Rebekah then went on to debunk the many myths surrounding apprenticeships explaining the work ready and training aspects.

She then explained where students can find such opportunities.

Rebekah is keen to further help our students and has offered to come back to give one to one advice to any students who might need it.
