The Pledge – Cheshire & Warrington – Apprenticeship Takeover

| 27/11/2020

On 2nd December 2020 from 6pm – 8pm we will be broadcasting the last of our #WhatNext events, an Apprenticeship Takeover!  This is free and open to all young people across Cheshire and Warrington but is especially aimed at Year 9 – 13. The Apprenticeship Takeover will be hosted on Learn Live, the online platform we used for the virtual careers fairs where students can watch a series of videos and take part in our Live Chat function which is fully moderated allowing them to ask questions safely and directly to employers and apprentices. The purpose of this event is to enable students & parents  understand what an apprenticeship is and find out some more from current apprentices about the wide variety of apprenticeships available in the regain. We have created this event in partnership with Ask Apprenticeships and YAAN (Young Apprenticeship Ambassador Network).

The page is now live and pupils/parents can register here:
