At Eskdale School we are committed to providing impartial Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance for all our students. We provide this in several ways: through the curriculum; within our ‘Big Picture’ programme, through careers workshops; through an independent careers adviser and also through employer and other education providers visiting the School to speak to our students.
Information on Jobs and Careers
You can use these links to look up what skills and qualifications you need for the job you are interested in. You can also find out wage details, suggestions of other similar jobs and what the job prospects are like for that job (whether it is expected that there will be more or less jobs in that particular career).
What is an apprenticeship?
Apprentices are employed in a job and paid a salary, whilst undertaking training to support the development of their skills. Apprentices will spend at least 20% of their paid time completing ‘off-the-job’ training where they will be supported by a training provider to achieve their apprenticeship. Apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16, living in England and have no upper age limit. To find more please visit the government website: https://www.apprenticeships.gov.uk/apprentices/becoming-apprentice and take a look at the National Apprenticeship Week Newsletter
