An alumni visit to share the value of apprenticeships

In anticipation of National Apprenticeship week (7-13 Feb), alumni Alfie Wilkinson-Boyd returned to school to talk to students about the value apprenticeships can offer.

Students today have many career options and pathways they can take to kick-start their journey into the working world.

At the young age of 18, students are posed with the difficult task of choosing which path to go down and it usually involves one of two options - University or Apprenticeship?  At TWGSB the most common answer is still 'university' however, with so many apprenticeships out there, including higher-level and degree apprenticeships, this path is fast-becoming an attractive one.

We often hear from alumni that the companies where they work offer such opportunities and our Year 12 and 13 students today welcomed back an alumni - Alfie Wilkinson-Boyd - who shared the detail of what it means to be an apprentice and the value the schemes bring to individuals, employers and communities in the UK.

Alfie is enjoying his role as a Trainee Tax Consultant with Tilney Smith & Williamson and his visit was a great success.
