Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge for Schools and Colleges programme (ASK) is funded by the National Apprenticeship Service.  The programme is designed to give schools, support to develop and transform how students think about apprenticeships.

On the 3rd of October the Careers department were delighted to welcome Fran and Helena from Lancashire Forum to give an extended assembly to the whole of Year 10 on Post 16 and Post 18 apprenticeship options from local and national companies.

The pupils had access to a great deal of up to date information and were able to discuss Helena’s own finance and accountancy apprenticeship experience as she is an Apprenticeship Ambassador.

A group of 35 pupils were able to have an extended Q&A session after the main assembly with Fran and Helena to ask more in-depth questions about possible routes into level 1 and level 2 apprenticeships.
