The Government has increased the age to which all young people in England must continue in education or training. This does not necessarily mean staying in school; young people have a choice about how they continue in education or training post-16, which could be through an apprenticeship with Sparsholt College.

Apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16, living in England. There are different entry requirements depending on the sector and job.

After completing an apprenticeship, students could continue to train for an advanced, higher, or degree level apprenticeship, or a related vocational qualification. Alternatively, students could go on to university, or take a professional qualification that leads to a specific job role.

It is becoming increasingly important that schools provide students with information about apprenticeships.  Our Schools Liaison Coordinator is able to visit your school to provide more information to your students on the range of apprenticeships available at Sparsholt College. Contact the College to arrange a visit.
