Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge in Schools

Funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency

GMLPN are offering a range of inspirational and engaging impartial Apprenticeship information and support to all schools, colleges and NEET providers in Greater Manchester for students in years 10, 11, 12 and 13. The aim of the Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge for Schools (ASK) programme is to support educational establishments to deliver high-quality information, advice and guidance (IAG) to their students on apprenticeships and traineeships.

We’re now taking bookings for activities to be delivered through the ASK Programme for the 2024-25 academic year. A summary of the offer can be found in the attached brochure. 

GMLPN alongside the ASK Programme have developed a Find An Apprenticeship Tool, which you can find here.

Hear from a school…

“Matt from the ASK Programme came into our school to live broadcast their session to all Year 11 forms. We used Google Meets (a programme on Gmail) to stream live into every classroom via the whiteboards. We wanted it to be live as we felt strongly that it would have more impact and also the person delivering it is the expert. After speaking to staff and students alike afterwards they all agreed it was really useful, especially at this early stage in the academic year and that it was useful to inform them of this as they’re all currently having their Career appointments.”
