Spotlight on Apprenticeship Sectors

Apprenticeships are a viable career pathway and are becoming the gold standard for work based learning. There are more than 280 types of apprenticeships suitable for over 1200 job roles in a range of industry sectors.

Manchester Academy ensures all its students and parent/carers are aware of the opportunities that a quality apprenticeship can provide. The key benefits of apprenticeships are that young people:

  • Earn a salary 
  • Have paid holidays 
  • Receive training 
  • Gain qualifications 
  • Learn job specific skills 
  • Can gain sponsorship for university undergraduate courses 

Partnerships are crucial if we are to remain at the cutting edge of providing up to date and relevant information for our young people. To this end we work closely with Manchester City Council, Job Centre Plus and local businesses. 

As well as information evenings and business partnership events we work with our students to support them in engaging with local businesses and registering on the National Apprenticeship service website – www.apprenticeships.org.uk.
