Amazing Apprenticeships:  Parent Information on Apprenticeships 

Amazing Apprenticeships are here to help educators, employers and students navigate the fast-changing world of apprenticeships.  Their partners deliver the ASK (apprenticeship support and knowledge) program to schools and college across the county designed to inform and inspire England’s students about apprenticeships on behalf of the National Apprenticeship Service.

The ASK project offers bespoke support packages for schools and colleges who want to increase awareness of apprenticeships.  They now have a Parents' Pack which is full of resources aimed at helping parents understand the benefits of apprenticeships, including translated resources, dates for your diary and 6 ways to keep informed.
