Billericay School students offered expert advice on apprenticeships

Nearly 50 pupils at the Billericay School have benefitted from expert advice and guidance as part of an innovative Essex County Council project.

On 23 November, the Essex County Council Apprenticeship Promotion and Brokerage Hub attended an Apprenticeship evening hosted by the Billericay School to discuss with Year 11 students how they can best maximise their opportunities in post-16 education.

The session brought together parents and carers with students to discuss how they can take advantage of the different apprenticeship opportunities available to them following their GCSEs next summer.

The pupils were able to find out more from companies such as Ford and organisations such as PROCAT about how they are increasing their apprenticeship opportunities, as well as gain valuable help from both Essex County Council and school experts on tailoring their CVs, writing cover letters and dealing with interviews to help them achieve their goals post-16.
