The Apprenticeship Support and Knowledge for Schools (ASK) programme has been commissioned by the National Apprenticeship Service, part of the Education Skills Funding Agency and DfE, to support the Government’s target of achieving 3 million apprenticeship starts by 2020. We would like to take this opportunity to ensure you are fully aware of this programme and the free services on offer to your establishment.



Our advisors are here to help with apprenticeship focused activities including a planning meeting (telephone or face to face) to help identify what support your school/college may need.


We encourage four activities throughout the year;

  • Apprenticeship talks for Year 10-13.
  • Parent networking opportunities.
  • Interactive sessions including mock assessments.
  • Interview guidance and writing a winning application.
  • Registering on the Find an apprenticeship website, searching local vacancies and setting up alerts so they don’t miss out on future vacancies.
  • Teacher apprenticeship CPD support.
  • Careers event attendance.


You will also receive access to a wealth of fantastic resources and guides which are beneficial for careers leaders, parents, students, teachers signposting all information about Apprenticeships.



If you would like the ASK Programme to deliver to your establishment, please visit Amazing Apprenticeships to complete an online support request and your local delivery partner will be in touch

Thank you,
