Sixth Form -Future Apprentice Academy

We've witnessed a growing interest in apprenticeships amongst our students and it's important to NSB that we enable our students to make informed choices and support them in achieving their apprenticeship goals:

Sixth Form - Future Apprentice Academy

  • An allocated lunchtime clinic where students can pop in for advice, guidance and support either on a 1:1 or group basis where students may peer mentor and support each other, facilitated by a qualified Careers Advisor

  • Subscription to The Careers People Apprenticeship Academy - a six week programme ensuring students are fully aware and prepared to secure their apprenticeships.  This programme includes employer and current apprentice guest speakers
