Working as an apprentice outdoor education tutor for a day
See the BBC Film
15 year old Evie tries out being an apprentice outdoor education tutor for a day. Evie gets some helpful advice about how to choose a career from a leading careers mentor, Aimee Bateman. Evie finds out what employers are looking for from one of Britain’s leading outdoor education centres, Derwent Hill Outdoor Education Centre. Evie also shadows apprentice Tom Gale and speaks to him about what his training involves.
An apprenticeship can be a terrific way into a job, to earn while you learn and can offer a real alternative to University for many young people. With school students now having to stay in full time education or training until the age of 18, this provides plenty of useful advice to those who may benefit from a vocational education setting.
