SO YOU’RE THINKING OF A CAREER IN…
The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and Be More, Be An Apprentice are committed to ensuring that young people and adults are able to access high-quality learning opportunities and Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance support.
We want to support young people and adults to secure meaningful employment that pays a fair living wage, provides appropriate progression opportunities and provides individuals with a rewarding career.
In order to support individuals to reach their full potential and benefit from improved social mobility we must actively work to break down and remove the barriers that get in the way. One such barrier is lack of access – from all ages – to accessible impartial Careers Education, Information Advice and Guidance materials and support. We have created a suite of online learning resources designed to support individuals, school careers leaders, careers guidance practitioners and adult learning tutors as well as students.
CAREERS FAIRS AND STUDENT/PARENT EVENTS
The Apprenticeship support team have delivered 33 free Skills Show Events since May 2017 attended by many local schools, providing Apprenticeship and careers advice and guidance including interactive engagement with local employers offering career opportunities to local students.
Be More Apprenticeship Support will also attend your School Careers Fairs or Student/Parent Career events with free Apprenticeship Career materials and advice delivered by our experienced team members.
SUPPORT WITH MOCK INTERVIEWS
The team are happy to support your school by attending any Mock Interview sessions, accompanied by representatives from our network of Employer Ambassadors where available. Our team have many years’ experience of working across various sectors both public and private and can utilise this in the classroom through delivering a relevant, realistic and knowledgeable interview experience.
ONE TO ONE SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS
Many of our local schools will request a member of our team attend one to one advice sessions for students; we will discuss Apprenticeships as an option post 16 or 18, what type of Apprenticeship careers are available and how to look for Apprenticeship opportunities, including support registering with the Gov.UK “Find an Apprenticeship” service.
EDUCATIONAL THEATRICAL PERFORMANCES
We have commissioned Open the Door Theatre in Education to create and deliver a short bespoke performance to convey to pupils the positive benefits of apprenticeships as a career pathway. This free performance has been reworked to include the most up to date information on Apprenticeships and tailored to your school year groups.
SUPPORT FOR SEND OR ALTERNATIVE SCHOOL SETTINGS
Our service works to be fully inclusive and the team are happy to discuss support for any SEND or Alternative School setting you feel may be appropriate for your students, with guidance on accessing Supported Internships, Traineeships or Apprenticeships as appropriate.
