St Matthias recognises that Apprenticeships and Traineeships are a popular pathway for our students when they come to consider their post 16 options in year 11.
In order to support this we participate in a National Apprenticeships Service funded programme - ASK.
ASK enables us, as a school to make sure students have access to up to date information on apprenticeships and to offer the level of personal support needed throughout the application process if students choose either of these pathways as an option.
All students participate in a general ASK apprenticeship presentation as a part of their careers programme in Year 11, which is then followed on with more information in smaller CEIAG sessions during PSHE.
Individual support is available for those students wishing to apply for apprenticeships through the careers team and independent careers advisor.
