The Third Advisor Training Conference held by The Good Schools Guide and Wellington College.

Who should attend? School and college advisors and career guidance counsellors; Directors of Studies; Year 12 Tutors and Heads of 5th and 6th Form; any other school representative helping a student navigate the future after school and parents.

At our first conference, we introduced the concept of degree apprenticeships. Last year, we took it one step further and helped delegates to understand the process, why the scheme is ideal for many students and what to look for in a good degree apprenticeship.

This year we continue to explore what makes a good degree apprenticeship programme, how to apply for one, where to find the information and what to expect at an assessment day. We will also meet some of the employers who offer degree apprenticeships and their partner universities. 

Academies and state schools: If you find the delegate fee places a barrier to attending, please contact us as some concessionary places are available.
