Too Clever

for an Apprenticeship? Research shows the Apprenticeship pathway leads to equal job satisfaction and salary as the University route. A new research report has revealed that many young people are being discouraged from choosing a vocational route into work, and are being advised that they are “too clever for an Apprenticeship”.

Talented Hairdresser scoops award at World Skills competition. Eleanor Peoples, with the support of Skills Solutions and her employer Soap Hairdressing, recently entered into the prestigious World Skills Hair Competition. Currently in her 2nd year Level 2 Hairdressing Apprenticeship with Skills Solutions’ Hair Academy in central Manchester, Eleanor was nominated for this as she had recently demonstrated fantastic creativity at our in house Stockport Academy Showcase Day. The World Skills Hair Competition set a brief for all entrants to follow and Eleanor practiced the cut and colour model of her choice before the event and created a mood board to capture her inspiration behind her look. On the day Eleanor and her tutor Joanne Fowler arrived at the venue ready for Eleanor to recreate and showcase her model. It’s fair to say that Eleanor was both nervous and very excited as this was her first competition but had Joanne by her side to support her and keep her focussed on the brief.

Eleanor worked against the clock to recreate the look in just one hour. In this time she had to cut at least 1cm off the hair and style to a high fashion look. As well as the hairstyling, Eleanor created the overall final image including make up clothes and jewellery .

The report, published by the Edge Foundation, maintains that many schools and families incorrectly assume that academic studies always lead to more success than vocational training. Of those young people who had chosen a vocational route, almost a third said that their school didn’t know much about Apprenticeships, and over 27% said that their parents didn’t think it was a worthwhile option. Whilst two thirds (65%) of those who chose an academic option said they felt their school supported their choice, only a third (35%) of the vocational group could say the same.

“The Apprenticeship was a refreshing alternative to university, as it gives you no debt, you get paid, and you gain most of the skills you would gain at university too. It was a very enjoyable Apprenticeship, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a challenging and eye-opening experience.” Fiona Mellett, Managing Director of Greater Manchester’s largest Apprenticeship training provider Skills Solutions said:

When the hour was up all the apprentices were asked to leave the floor whilst the judges took to the stage to score all the entrants final looks. Eleanor said this was the longest hour of her life and sat nervously awaiting to be called back. Results time arrived. A World Skills representative announced the winners, Eleanor Peoples and Joanne were delighted to hear that Eleanor had won third place. Local girl Eleanor from Cheadle was absolutely thrilled at winning third place in the World Skills Hair Competition. Her tutors and fellow learners at the Stockport Hair Academy are very proud of her achievement. Well done Eleanor!

Michael Smith works as a Trade Control Analyst at RBS in Manchester. Michael got excellent grades in his GCSEs and A levels, but instead of going to university, he opted for the Apprenticeship route, completing his Level 3 in Providing Financial Services last year. Michael said:

But crucially the study reveals that those who pursued vocational paths are as satisfied with their jobs as their peers who pursued academic routes. All those surveyed were asked to rate their current career in relation to factors such as career choice, salary, success, fulfillment and overall job satisfaction. The answers reveal remarkably little difference in satisfaction between people who chose academic and vocational pathways.

“This report shows that too many schools and parents have a totally outdated view of the Apprenticeships that exist today. Many talented and ambitious young people are making a positive choice to pursue a vocational route in a huge variety of occupational sectors.”

With more people than ever currently on Apprenticeships, and record numbers of applications for each place, there’s now a new lifeline available for young people who’ve missed out on an Apprenticeship so far. The new programme has been introduced to help those young people who aren’t quite ready to compete for an Apprenticeship. Traineeships are part of the Apprenticeship ‘family’, and are designed to last for up to six months, and offer young people three essential elements: • A meaningful work experience placement which provides an insight to the world of work • English and maths support if required • Work preparation training to ensure that the young person is prepared and confident to take the first step in their career Alan Benvie, Director of Study Programmes at Greater Manchester’s largest Apprenticeship provider, Skills Solutions said:

Year 11’s have the choice and that’s official

Leaving school this year and want to know the FACTS about your options? Read all about it here… You may have heard that the government has ‘Raised the Participation Age’ and be wondering what this is all about - one thing is for sure, it doesn’t mean that the school leaving age has changed everyone must complete their final year in school.

18 - what you decide to do when you leave after year 11 is up to you. And the good news is you have a few options you may not have considered yet - you can get a job with training, or you can start a Traineeship or an Apprenticeship job.

But here’s where some people are getting it confused - you don’t have to ‘stay on’ at your current school until you are 17 or

So if earning and learning at the same time rather than do A’ Levels or a course at sixth form or college is right for you, then go for it! You

www.skills-solutions.org.uk

can choose the option that is right for you and what’s best for your long-term prospects. What can be sure of is, with an Apprenticeship, you will gain financial independence, build an employment rack record with the kind of experience you just can’t get in a classroom. If you decide on an Apprenticeship you won’t miss out on higher qualifications as most

pathways offer progression after advanced level, and you can even go to university degrees later on. To find out more about working and training at the same time, getting more qualifications and extra skills that will really set your career off on the right path, talk to the Recruitment Team at Skills Solutions on 0161 233 2656.
