Apprenticeships or Uni? Facebook Live 7th March!

Apprenticeships or Uni? Facebook Live 7th March!

National Apprenticeship Week 2018 (5-9th March) is designed to celebrate the positive impact that apprenticeships have on individuals, businesses and the economy.

To mark the week-long celebration, the CII will be running a Facebook Livestream aimed at both 16-18 year olds, parents and teachers. The livestream promises to be engaging as Capital FM’s Roman Kemp will host the debate. We will also have a former apprentice to give his point of view on apprenticeships.

Time: 7:30pm-8:00pm
Date: 7th March
Where to tune in – Facebook - DiscoverRiskFB

The CII wants to challenge the current perception around apprenticeships and ultimately get young people to consider an apprenticeship as an esteemed and successful route into a career.

Whilst the CII are an insurance professional body, this isn’t purely about insurance and risk. We want students to consider apprenticeships in all sectors. Many are still unaware that you now do not need to go to University to become a solicitor, engineer, accountant or underwriter for some of the Top 100 FTSE companies.

As part of this initiative the CII have conducted research which has highlighted the reliance young people have on schools (59% of 1000 respondents) to provide them with careers information. 

Research also uncovered that 96% of 16-18 year olds feel that their parents were in some way influential when it came to educational and career choices. We also found that parent’s place the biggest reliance on their schools to get their information from (57%) which is why it is so important that parents are fully informed which is why we are inviting them to watch our livestream.

Please tune in on Wednesday 7th March from 7:30 pm on our facebook page here
