There are resources to help you:
Hear from people involved
Robyn's Graduate Apprenticeship
Since starting my apprenticeship, I’ve been able to learn so much more about the industry and from what I learn at uni I can apply that in my day to day job.
Clarrie's ScotGrad Placement
It's quite difficult to find jobs that you think match you perfectly so I wouldn't get worried if something doesn't come up straight away.
Investors in Young People
We recognise that young people are the future. You can only do so much with an ageing workforce so you need young people coming in with fresh ideas, enthusiasm that are going to be there to take the business forward.
Developing the Young Workforce
A lot of people have been in our business for 25 or 30 years and sometimes it's great to bring in a young, fresh mind who might look at something a bit differently.
Brooke's support from the Prince's Trust
When I started working in care I realised I already had what you needed.
