At Clifford Holroyde we have a Careers Programme in place that ensures that you are well equipped for the future and have the information you need to make realistic and informed decisions about further education, training and employment.
When you leave school at 16, you are likely to have some or all of the following options available to you depending on your independence and support needs:
Further education at a college or training provider to follow a study programme.
Apprenticeship – An apprenticeship is a way to gain the skills, knowledge and experience you need to get into many careers. They combine work, training and study, letting you ‘earn while you learn’. Apprenticeships are available across a range of areas. Further information can be found here.
Traineeship – Usually a 6 month programme made up of extended work experience working towards qualifications. A traineeship will normally lead to an apprenticeship or work. Further information.
Supported Internship – Supported Internships are a study programme for learners with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs). Learners will have a work placement and complete relevant qualifications alongside their placement. More information about Liverpool’s Supported Internship programme.
