Educator Support

Apprenticeship Support & Knowledge (ASK)

Apprenticeship Support and knowledge for schools and colleges.

The Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge for Schools and Colleges programme (ASK) is funded by the National Apprenticeship Service, part of the Department for Education. The programme is designed to give schools, colleges and other educational establishments across England free support to develop and transform how your students think about apprenticeships.

What that support looks like for you will depend on your establishment’s size, focus and requirements, but it could include an inspiring apprenticeship awareness assembly, apprenticeship application workshop, careers fair attendance, free resources, a teacher CPD session or a whole range of other options.

Opportunities Doncaster helps to coordinate and facilitate that support for all secondary schools and colleges in Doncaster. As a delivery partner of the programme we will work with your school to directly assess your requirements and deliver a bespoke support package for your students.

For 20/21 each school has access to a range of funded activity, with a requirement to have at least one activity each term, and a minimum of four throughout the academic year.

About the Programme

We would like to take this opportunity to ensure you are fully aware of this programme and the free services on offer to your establishment.

Our advisors are here to help with apprenticeship focused activities including a planning meeting (telephone or face to face) to help identify what support your school/college may need.

We encourage four activities throughout the year, all of which can be delivered virtually or face to face.

  • Apprenticeship talks for Year 10-13.
  • Parent networking opportunities.
  • Interactive sessions including mock assessments.
  • Interview guidance and writing a winning application.
  • Registering on the Find an apprenticeship website, searching local vacancies and setting up alerts so students don’t miss out on future vacancies.
  • Teacher apprenticeship CPD support.
  • Careers event attendance.

You will also receive access to a wealth of fantastic resources and guides which are beneficial for careers leaders, parents, students, teachers signposting all information about Apprenticeships.

To book your delivery, please complete the form below for each activity you would like and a member of the team will be in touch to finalise details accordingly.

This is the same booking form as the oa virtual wallet, just the drop down menu will be the bullet points above instead
