Apprenticeships logo

Apprentices are paid employees, who work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. They will also study a college-based course, usually on a day release basis, leading to nationally recognised qualifications. Depending on the age of the apprentice, government grants cover up to 100% of the training costs. In addition, the apprenticeship grant for employers can help businesses employ an apprentice (aged 16 – 24 years) by providing wage grants of £1,500. Priority is given to small-medium sized businesses with less than 250 employees, who are recruiting an apprentice for the first time.

Businesses can find out more about apprenticeships on the website or by calling 08000 150600. You can also search for vacancies on this site. For more information about apprenticeships in Rushmoor call Debbie Whitcombe at Rushmoor Borough Council on 01252 398793.

Take One Picture is the National Gallery's countrywide scheme for primary schools. Each year the Gallery focuses on one painting from the collection to inspire cross-curricular work in primary classrooms. During a one-day Continuing Professional Development course at the Gallery teachers are given a print of a painting. The challenge is then for schools to use the image imaginatively in the classroom, both as a stimulus for artwork, and for work in more unexpected curriculum areas. National Gallery Education then displays a selection of the work in the annual Take One Picture exhibition at the National Gallery and on their website.
