As part of the sustained Design your Future programme, 22 Year 10 students from a number of schools across Swindon, took part in a session learning all about apprenticeships.
Kim Martin from the ASK apprenticeships team delivered an informative and interactive session, which the students engaged and responded well to - even getting all the quiz questions correct!
They then heard from Ben Dew a former apprentice from Renault Formula 1 team about his journey to becoming a Composite Technician. From Ben they also learnt about the reality of working and learning simultaneously and even though they were shocked by his working hours, they seemed to like the idea of his salary!
Students then had the opportunity to chat and visit Ben and 3aaa Swindon’s stands to find out more about the apprenticeships they offer.
Both parents and students have fed back that they really enjoyed this session and are looking forward to the rest of the Design your Future programme.
