Insight into Apprenticeships with Forrit

Target audience - Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old), College
In the world we live in today, the only constant is change. Here at Forrit we help our clients deliver digital experiences around the globe that entertain, educate, inform and inspire.

Headquartered in Edinburgh, we are available to speak to schools/colleges in the surrounding area about the opportunities a Modern Apprenticeship and Graduate Apprenticeship can offer. We have been running our award-winning apprenticeship programme for a number of years now. Several of our Modern Apprentices went straight to university from school before dropping out in their first year. Since taking up an apprenticeship with Forrit, they are now excelling through the blend of academic and vocational learning that an apprenticeship offers, with most having progressed onto our Graduate Apprenticeship scheme in Software Development.

Since 2014 we’ve been on a mission to give everyone the power they need to create, deploy, analyze and optimize their digital estate in a secure and scalable way. Not only are we building an awesome product (the next generation content management system), we’re also building the right culture and that’s equally important to us. Built into our DNA is the desire to create the best work environment for our people and we're proud to have been nominated ‘Best Tech Place to Work’.

The skills required to survive in today’s modern workplace are dynamic and not just about academic knowledge. Every young person is unique in their talents and skills, personality, views and the way in which they learn.

Scotland's Apprentice Network - Is an Apprenticeship for me ?

Target audience - Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old), Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old)
There’s no one better to promote apprenticeships than successful apprentices themselves – that’s the thinking behind Scotland’s Apprentice Network! The Network is a community of past and present apprentices. The apprentices span a range of ages, skills and sectors and they volunteer their time to promote apprenticeships to school pupils, parents/carers, teachers, employers and government. You can now access a whole network of apprentices and book time for them to virtually talk to pupils or take part in a virtual event at your school. There are so many benefits with tapping into the Network. All members are:  - Keen to give a positive account of their own industry, skillset and pathway into their apprenticeship  - Can be booked to give virtual input into a Q&A session, PSE or virtual careers evenings etc. - Are keen to talk to and answer questions from school pupils   - Can have a greater impact with pupils who are making career/ subject choices than general careers information alone  - Represent their Employer and as such, require employer endorsement as an effective advocate of apprenticeships  - Network members are flexible and happy to accommodate your event – whether that means 30 minutes, double period or lunch-time session. - We have multiple delivery channels to accommodate your ask and online accessibility within your School…let us know what you need.

Breaking the glass ceiling: an art glass journey through education and a career in the traditional crafts.

Target audience - Primary School Pupil, Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old), Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old)
I am a glass artist based in Glasgow and operating across the Scottish central belt. My business operates on two models; a customer led commissioning process, ensuring the customer's vision is achieved through close consultation and expert advice, and the promotion of glass as an art medium to school pupils, with the aim of generating interest in glass art and to open opportunities for the next generation of glass artists. I have presented at Developing the Young Workforce and My World of Work events, at which I emphasise the benefits of STEAM. I am also available to deliver a program of workshops that are tailored to compliment your school's syllabus and Curriculum for Excellence.
