NAW: University or Degree Apprenticeship?

NAW: University or Degree Apprenticeship?

Former student Grace returned to St Julie's this week to speak to Sixth Form students about Degree Apprenticeships.

Accompanied by her colleague Melissa, Grace spoke to students about her experiences of applying for university via the traditional route compared to the degree apprenticeship pathway.

Having secured a Degree Apprenticeship with Laing O'Rourke, Grace was able to describe an average day in the life of an apprentice, and outline how this particular Post 18 route will enable her to gain qualifications alongside work experience. 

Grace and Melissa were able to offer students first hand experience of balancing work and study; and the many opportunities available to school leavers via the Degree Apprenticeship pathway. Thanks to them both for making the time to come in!
