This included activities I would not normally<br />

be involved in, such as the Dragon Boat Race.<br />

They helped me gain a more confident and<br />

positive attitude towards new experiences.<br />

My favourite part was completing my Duke of<br />

Edinburgh Award, which required me to push<br />

myself physically and socially, and I met lots<br />

of new people. I would definitely recommend<br />

getting involved with activities during your <strong>time</strong><br />

at <strong>College</strong>.’<br />

Tyler<br />

“<br />

‘The Youth Club helped me develop my<br />

organisational and social skills, as well as my<br />

confidence in new situations. In particular,<br />

I developed my communication and team<br />

working skills through meeting new people.<br />

I really enjoyed helping to organise the theme<br />

park trips and I would definitely recommend<br />

getting involved. Make sure you talk to new<br />

people, especially if you struggle with your<br />

confidence, as it is a chance to meet and bond<br />

with people in the same situation as you.’<br />

CHOOSING THE RIGHT COURSE<br />

TO HELP YOU MAKE YOUR NEXT STEP -<br />

A FULL-TIME COURSE, AN APPRENTICESHIP<br />

OR TRAINEESHIP, THINK ABOUT:<br />

• What you like doing as a hobby or interest.<br />

• What you enjoyed at school.<br />

• The type of job you would like.<br />

• Where do you want to progress after college?<br />

University? A job? An Apprenticeship?<br />

If you are not sure, come to one of our Open Days<br />

or speak to Student Services and we can help you<br />

explore your options.<br />

COURSES AT SHIPLEY COLLEGE:<br />

BTEC STUDY PROGRAMME AVAILABLE FROM<br />

ENTRY TO LEVEL 3<br />

On a BTEC course you will:<br />

• Be a full-<strong>time</strong> student, studying and building<br />

your knowledge, skills and confidence for<br />

approximately 16 hours a week at our campus<br />

in Saltaire.<br />

• Have the opportunity to get experience of work<br />

both in the <strong>College</strong> and through external work<br />

placements.<br />

• Get the knowledge, understanding and skills<br />

to prepare you for further study, training or<br />

employment.<br />

• Level 3 BTEC courses earn UCAS points equivalent<br />

to A Levels which support entry to university.<br />

(You should check university websites for<br />

individual course entry requirements).<br />

APPRENTICESHIPS AVAILABLE AT INTERMEDIATE<br />

(LEVEL 2), ADVANCED (LEVEL 3) & HIGHER<br />

(LEVEL 4)<br />

If you are ready to start earning and feel you are<br />

responsible and hard working, then an apprenticeship<br />

is ideal for you.<br />

As an apprentice:<br />

• You are employed and paid full-<strong>time</strong> directly by<br />

a company while studying for your qualifications<br />

at <strong>College</strong>. This is normally split in to four days a<br />

week in a job, plus a day at <strong>College</strong>.<br />

• You can follow in the footsteps of over 90% of<br />

our apprentices who have moved in to full-<strong>time</strong><br />

employment.<br />

• Your advanced apprenticeship is equivalent to<br />

2-3 A Levels, which can lead to, or be an<br />

alternative to, university.<br />

See pages 18-20 for more information about<br />

apprenticeships.<br />

TRAINEESHIPS – THE ALTERNATIVE ROUTE IN<br />

TO EMPLOYMENT<br />

Are you 16 to 24 but still not sure what is best for<br />

you? We know it’s not always easy to find the role for<br />

you, especially with little or no work experience and<br />

few or no qualifications. Traineeships help bridge the<br />

gap between the skills that you have and those that<br />

employers need.<br />

Traineeships.<br />

MARTIN & CO ESTATE AGENCY<br />

“ “<br />

Student Name: Vicky<br />

Business Administration Intermediate Apprentice<br />

‘I have been doing my Apprenticeship for nearly six<br />

months and have already learnt so much. Working<br />

in the Lettings Team, I am always busy and am<br />

continuously learning. The main part of my role<br />

is customer service, as I take enquiries and book<br />

appointments to view properties. I have to be very<br />

organised and proactive to make sure everything is<br />

done properly. I enjoy getting out and about around<br />

Saltaire to accompany viewings, because it is good<br />

to meet the customers and see the properties we<br />

have available.<br />

I found this apprenticeship through the jobs listed<br />

on the <strong>Shipley</strong> <strong>College</strong> website and found the whole<br />

process easy and the staff were helpful.’<br />

Employer Name: Angela Newark<br />

Director, Lettings Manager, Martin & Co Estate<br />

Agency<br />

‘For us, hiring an apprentice was an opportunity to<br />

train a young person in our way of doing things from<br />

the very start of their career. Our current apprentice<br />

has not been with us very long, but in this relatively<br />

short <strong>time</strong> we have already seen her develop, mature<br />

and become a proficient and confident member of<br />

the team. Working in a customer facing role, there is<br />

a lot of pressure to get things right, but Vicky always<br />

tries her best and gets on well with the team.<br />

The process of finding an apprentice though <strong>Shipley</strong><br />

<strong>College</strong> was very easy. They helped us advertise<br />

the post, and supported us in the shortlisting and<br />

selection process. The support has been excellent<br />

and I would definitely recommend them to anyone<br />

else considering hiring an apprentice.’<br />

ABOUT THE COURSE<br />

You learn about worldwide destinations, customer<br />

service, holiday representatives and retail/business<br />

travel. Take advantage of the unique opportunity<br />

to go on a week-long trip overseas. Students have<br />

previously travelled out to the Costa del Sol to work<br />

in the ‘First Choice’ Holiday Village. This first-hand<br />

experience shows what it is like to work in a resort by<br />

shadowing holiday reps, taking part in planning fun<br />

activities and visiting hotels, resorts and airports.<br />

In addition, you complete further work experience to<br />

give you a vital taste of careers in this industry.<br />

Study visits and residentials, which may be both<br />

in the UK and overseas, form an integral part of<br />

this course and you may be required to contribute<br />

towards the cost. You are encouraged to consider<br />

fundraising initiatives to help cover these costs.<br />

YOUR FUTURE<br />

After the course, you can study at college or<br />

university at a higher level, or use the skills and<br />

experience you have gained to progress further in<br />

your career in the Travel & Tourism industry.<br />
