National Apprenticeships Week

National Apprenticeships Week

This week is National Apprenticeships Week 2021 (8-12 February), and at Tottington High School we are providing our Year 11 students with lots of information around Apprenticeships through their Personal Development lessons this week. In addition, all students and parents can access the range of resources that Amazing Apprenticeships have put together to help you find out more about Apprenticeships and where they can take you, if this is an option you would like to consider after secondary education.

The Bury Apprenticeship Working Group

The Bury Apprenticeship Working Groups have put together a newsletter to inspire local teens on the work they are doing in Bury and to celebrate local success stories. Take a look at the Apprenticeships-Good News Letter below to find out more about apprenticeships through Bury College, North Lancs Training Group, JM Excellence and many more!

We are pleased to invite you and your son or daughter to an exciting online event to find out more about the wide range of Apprenticeships, college, university and training opportunities open to them, once they have left school and after college.
