Apprenticeship Evening at Neatherd

Dear Parents and carers

We would like to invite you to attend our Apprenticeship Evening which takes place on Wednesday, 2nd March.

Apprenticeships are becoming more popular all the time and we as a school would like to give more information to both students and parents about the benefits of taking an apprenticeship. An apprenticeship offers a practical alternative to university and a fast route into a career with good prospects. Apprenticeships enable young people to start working and earn while they learn key skills and gain the qualifications that future employers are looking for.

The evening is going to start with an informative talk about apprenticeships in general, the application process, apprenticeships available in Norfolk and how to access them at 6pm in the school canteen. Afterwards parents and students can meet a large variety of apprenticeship providers in the Sports Hall to find out more information about the services available and even learn about current vacancies. If you are not able to come to the presentation, you are still welcome to speak to the providers in the Sports Hall. Please see below for a list of providers who have confirmed their attendance so far and we are still expecting more replies. Please note that the providers for the night are subject to change.

Our Careers Advisor, Mrs James, will also be available for a chat or you can make an appointment to see her at a later date.

We would be delighted to welcome you on the 2nd March. Please note that students do not need to attend in school uniform. We anticipate that the evening will finish no later than 7.30pm.

Yours sincerely

Robert Hodges
