Looking for a new start after school but don’t know where to begin?

There’s a lot to think about. We can help.

Talk to HTP for independent careers advice and guidance. We can help you find the job you want. The future starts here!

We know that it’s not easy being 16 years old. Making decisions about the future can be difficult, particularly after all of the stress of the last year and the way that the pandemic has impacted on GCSE education.

If you already know that you don’t want to stay on at school and you don’t want to go to college, have you considered an Apprenticeship?

If you’re fed up with the classroom, we can help. Or if you’re a parent and your son or daughter isn’t getting what they need from education, we can put them on the right track. Come to HTP for a change and a fresh start.

Genuine jobs

We can help you find a real job, faster. We have placements with great employers that can get you started on your journey to the world of work. Apply to us and we can find you an Apprenticeship that will inspire you.

We’re not like school

You must be in a form of education or training until the age of 18, but that doesn’t mean you have to be in a classroom five days a week. You can get ahead of the pack – an Apprenticeship gets you out in the workplace, learning real skills.

We’re independent

If you’re thinking about an Apprenticeship or a different form of further education, talk to the team at HTP for independent careers advice and guidance.

We have a proven track record in helping young people to kickstart their careers. We liaise with the businesses directly, connecting you with a potential future employer.

What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a qualification built around a specific job role. You’ll get paid whilst you learn new skills in the workplace, as well as gaining a formal qualification.

It’s a much more work-related way of learning, usually spending 80% of your time at work and 20% learning and studying. You’ll be earning money as you learn too!

Apprenticeships really do work

Starting work as an Apprentice has been the beginning of a dream career for lots of young people. For many 16 year olds, the opportunity to take up a vocational qualification instead of staying at school or college has put them on the right career path.

Businesses agree too. Employers want to recruit people with the kind of hands-on skills and experience that you’ll learn as an Apprentice.

Try something new

An Apprenticeship gives you real life experience in the workplace and teaches the skills that A-levels won’t prepare you for. You can study Business, Health & Social Care, Professional Cookery, Retail, Teaching, Tourism, Customer Service and much more.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t know exactly what you want to do just yet. An Apprenticeship is a brilliant first step into the world of work. You can use it to discover the things you’re really excited by and move into other roles and industries.

An Apprenticeship is the ideal opportunity if you’re ready to leave school. Get started on the route to your dream career!
