On the 9th February I took a small group of Year 11 Design Technology students to the BAE ASK Centre at Salmesbury. This was an amazing opportunity for them to find out about the world-class apprenticeship programmes offered by BAE Systems, covering everything from Logistics to Business Adminstration and the various engineering roles.
Our students were able to meet with apprentices and hear exactly what it’s like to work and learn at the ASK centre, which has a welcoming part-university, part-workplace feel. Along the way we bumped into some former PGHS students, and they are thriving at BAE!
The visit was so inspiring that two students have since gone on to apply for an apprenticeship and I really hope they are successful.
