Employers have already started to consider how their current mix of early career talent propositions will need to change in light
of the Apprenticeship Levy. Some graduate programmes will be transitioned to Level 7 apprenticeship schemes, and employers may
start to offer Degree Apprenticeships to act as a feeder to internal graduate programmes.
As apprenticeships are becoming more attractive to both employers and students there will be a change in both the number
and type of apprenticeships businesses offer with an increased focus in terms of marketing and brand awareness just as we see with graduate schemes now:
• Businesses are already starting to make changes to the way they benchmark themselves as top employers '
putting apprenticeships and graduate schemes on the same level of importance and merit in their organisations.
• Graduate teams are quickly becoming ‘Early Career’ teams or new apprenticeship specific functions will be
created, giving recruiters and programme managers new responsibilities and career pathways.
• Industry awards are already expanding to include apprenticeships and we expect to see more.
This change has led to the natural progression for students after school to become less obvious
and the decision has become harder to make.
At Millennial Mentoring we use our experience of both the working world and education to give an open and honest
view of the pros and cons of each avenue a student can take and act as a bridge for either further education or joining the
workforce after leaving education.
Class Talks are the best way for us to engage a large group of students and cover broader subjects such as interview skills or what to do after school.
we use both real life and career examples in our talks to help relate to our audience and this is really what stands us apart from other early careers teams.
We cover a large array of early careers and life skills but here are a few of our most popular talks:
What to expect in the first year after School
What to expect in your first 6 months of your first job
Key behavioral skills that will make up for lacking experiance
Interview skills and the different types of interview
The key differences between university and an apprenticeship
Assembly & Class Talks
Workshops allow us to work in more detail with a smaller student base at a time. This way we can tailor our approach to each individual student and work with them on their specific needs.
Our workshops focus on areas such as CV writing and how to work out what type of job you would like and how to get there.
We support students in a lot of different ways in our workshops using a wealthy of educational and life experience.
Some of the subject we cover are:
How to find your perfect job
How to apply for a job
What to expect after you leave school for either a job or further education.
Classroom Q&A's to answer and student specific queries
Should i go to University or get a job?
I am going to university...now what?
