Achieved Your Apprenticeship?  Now What?

So, you have finished your apprenticeship and undecided what to do next.  There are a variety of options to consider in terms, including:

Progressing onto an apprenticeship at a higher level – Depending on the work environment, it may be possible to progress from intermediate to advanced or from advanced to a higher apprenticeship. You should discuss this option with your employer and Training Advisor.

Continued Professional Development – Through discussions with your employer, you may look at enrolling on specific courses that relate to your role.  For example, a Business Administration apprentice may look at AAT accounting qualifications or Engineering apprentices may look at the HNC programme Appris offer.  We are also developing a Foundation Degree for Engineers, more information to follow.

Higher Education – The apprenticeship you have completed may give you enough UCAS points in order to enrol for a foundation degree or full degree course.

Using the diagram below for engineering progressional routes, there are many options on progressing your career and learning.  The decision you have to make is how far you want to go!
