This week -1 March to 8 March 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of National Careers Week.

At this time of the year, you will be thinking about your future. COVID-19 has had a massive impact on your education, your ability to take part in active work experience, and face to face guidance in your school or college.

That is where NCW has stepped in with lots of really valuable advice about the pathways open to you as you move to the final stage of formal education. What ambitions do you have for yourself ?

One route which had become increasingly popular is that of apprenticeships. 

What picture comes into your mind when you hear the word apprentice ?

  • A young person washing clients’ hair in your local hairdressing salon
  • A young person acting as the ‘gofor’ to an electrician, plumber or decorator
  • A young person studying for professional qualifications while carrying out paid employment 

Accountancy, banking, IT, law, management and television all now offer apprenticeships which give you the best of both worlds – no tuition fees, a salary which should cover your living expenses and an unrivalled opportunity to acquire a highly respected, totally portable qualification.

To apply for an apprenticeship, you will need a CV and a covering letter. This is where the team at PainFree Personal Statements can help. You may not know where to begin with your CV.

Our first piece of advice is ‘Don’t worry !
