Understanding the options available

It is sometimes confusing working out what options are available to our children and dependents after school. We are often very familiar with traditional routes of education, A-Levels and then onto University being the main ones. These may not be right for your children and you should know there may be more suitable options.

Apprenticeships can sometimes be deemed to just be for manual trade jobs, such as bricklaying and carpentry. Starting Off have been placing learners into workplace learning for over 30 years, we now often place our past students' children into work. At Starting Off we focus on Accountancy, Customer Service, Business Administration, Infrastructure Technician, Team Leadership and Digital Marketing.

While doing an apprenticeship the learner experiences a blended learning environment, so although there may be some classroom learning, the majority of this will be done in the workplace. To achieve a qualification the learner will require to have a level 4 (Grade C or above) at GCSE in Maths and English (Don't worry, if either of these haven't already been achieved, the teaching team at Starting Off will work with the learner to achieve these).
