Barclays Apprentice Insight Sessions

5-6 March 2020

At Barclays, there’s more to discover. 2020 marks our biggest ever year for Apprenticeships in Glasgow and we would like to invite parents to one of two ‘virtual’ insight events taking place during Scottish Apprenticeship Week.

These events are specifically for parents to help them discover more about our Apprenticeship opportunities and to share this with their children. Parents will have the opportunity to hear from our business, our Apprentices/Apprentice-Parents and our Early Careers teams. We will also walk through the application and assessment process and the support available through our LifeSkills programme, with the opportunity for Q&A at the end.

The parents we are keen to engage with are:

  • S3 to S6 Parents, interested in finding out about Graduate Apprentice opportunities for their children, either for applications this year or for 2021 and beyond. 
  • Any parents interested in Barclays Apprenticeships overall.

Session Times  
Parents will take part individually using simple pc technology details of which our delivery partner, Channel Talent, will send prior to each session. The available session times are:

  • Session 1 (5th March) @ 19.00-19.45
  • Session 2 (6th March) @ 19.00-19.45

What Should A School Do Next?
Each school to consider and share with pupils to then share with parents (or) to cascade directly to relevant parent groups (where possible). Further context about the opportunity can be found here: Parent/Carer Buzz - Glasgow
