It’s that time of the year when students who have just completed their GCSE exams will be considering their options for September.
It may be the case that you, or a friend or relative, is looking for something other than the more academic route, but don’t know where to start.
You can start earning straight away
If you’re keen to join the world of work – and start earning straight away – an Apprenticeship could be for you.
With the highest quality training from the Island’s only OFSTED Outstanding Apprenticeship provider, an Apprenticeship with HTP will set you on an excellent career pathway.
Vast range of opportunities
The range of opportunities through an Apprenticeship is vast – with a variety of vocational subjects and levels to choose from.
HTP Apprenticeship College specialises in providing high quality Apprenticeships in: Professional Cookery, Hospitality, Business Administration, Retail, Customer Service, Management, Health and Social Care. As well as Fitness Instructing, Nail Technology, Childcare and Education.
There’s no doubt that an Apprenticeship will make a real difference to you as a person – and develop your future prospects.
One such success story is Kimberly Waite. When she finished her GCSEs at Cowes Enterprise College in 2016, Kimberly didn’t quite have the grades she needed for the Level 2 Childcare course she wanted to join, so opted for a Level 1 BTEC First Diploma 1 Health and Social Care instead.
After a successful year, she moved on to the Level 2 Childcare course and has now just completed the Level 3 Diploma in Children’s Learning and Development.
Thanks to the support from HTP and her drive to to succeed, just three years after leaving school without the grades she needed, Kimberly is now working at Little Acres Childcare Centre in Carisbrooke.
Not only that, but as well as her vocational qualifications, Kimberly sat her GCSE maths and English exams this year too, setting her up for a great career path.
