As part of our focus on careers we have information from the National Apprenticeship Service which you may find useful. Students learn about apprenticeships as part of the KS4 careers curriculum at Hylands. This pack gives parents guidance on the various routes available. It can be found below, if you need any further information about apprenticeships please contact our careers advisor Mrs Wood on the details above.
