Ford Apprenticeship Information Evenings
Schools Broadcast about the Graduate Job Market & Degree Apprenticeships
I’m pleased to invite you and your colleagues from Westcliff High School for Girls to watch a special free broadcast for schools & sixth form colleges on the morning of Wednesday 26th May.
The live broadcast will present the very latest assessment of how university entrance, the graduate job market and degree apprenticeships have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic over the last 12 months – and its likely impact of the career prospects for today's Lower & Upper Sixth students.
This special broadcast takes the place of The National Graduate Careers Conference – the annual event for schools’ Heads of Careers, Directors of University Admissions and Heads of Sixth Form. The continuing Coronavirus restrictions mean that this year’s conference isn’t able to go ahead as planned, but will return in full in 2022.
The broadcast will be hosted by Martin Birchall, Editor of The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers and will feature interviews, expert analysis and practical guidance from the country's top employers, to help schools advise their sixth-formers on the universities, degree courses and apprenticeships that are most likely to lead to a successful graduate career in the future.
It will also include discussions with current university students, recent graduates and degree apprentices, talking about their experiences of job hunting, starting work with their first employer and what they wished they'd known before leaving school or sixth-form college.
