The Global Skills Ledger team is again supporting the School Leaver Awards 2020 awards.

The School Leaver Awards 2020 celebrate the top employers and training providers for school and college leavers on apprenticeship programmes.

Employers, training providers, colleges and their agencies can put themselves forward for the awards which are free to enter. Unlike other awards, The School Leaver Awards 2020 are based on the opinions of apprentices themselves.

With more than 600,000 visitors each year, is the primary platform for school leavers making career decisions. With popular advice sections for parents and careers advisers too, it’s the top performing platform for hundreds of employers who run successful digital campaigns on the website each year

At AllAboutSchoolLeavers, the team’s mission is clear: they help school leavers get jobs and to understand the career paths available to them. 

GSL CEO, Jonathan Ledger commented:

It is really important to us and the team at the School Leaver Awards that young people see apprenticeships as a first choice, every time choice. These awards enable employers to demonstrate their reach and creativity in recruiting school leavers and to celebrate how great their apprenticeships programmes are. We love these awards and it is a real honour to be able to support them.

Employers, parents, teachers and young people need to recognise that apprenticeships offer a way to gain workplace experience and skills that provide a springboard into long term careers. The days of a purely academic focus have shifted and we are a significant revival of apprenticeships – and at all levels – including degree level. Who wouldn’t want to gain the right skills for the right job right now!
