Please find attached a briefing note regarding the Foundation Apprenticeships that are available via NESCol for AY 17-19.
These are a fantastic opportunity for pupils to gain accredited industry recognised qualifications and work based learning whilst remaining at school for S5 and S6. Pupils who select a Foundation Apprenticeship alongside school based Senior Phase qualifications have the opportunity to progress to University, College, employment or with advanced entry into an MA. The enhancement to CV’s and Personal Statements resulting from the accredited and extended Work Based Learning is considerable!
