Jobs and Apprenticeships
If you require any careers information or help with job-seeking, students can make an appointment to see the careers adviser who is based in school.
Alternatively, they can speak with Miss McCafferty in the Sixth Form Office.

You could also apply for an apprenticeship through a local college or training provider. . It would be worth attending the colleges’ open days to find out more about the apprenticeships and the levels that they offer as well as finding out more about the colleges in general.
Leicester City Council has an apprenticeship hub where they advertise latest vacancies so it would be worth having a look at this too (http://www.leicester.gov.uk/your-council-services/jobs-and-careers/leicester-to-work/leicester-apprenticeship-hub/).
