@Caterham.High.SchoolThe online safety tip of the week is: Make sure you talk to real life friends and family on social media sites and in chatrooms. If you engage in online gaming with strangers you could be talking to and playing with someone who is lying about their age, gender and job. In fact, everything they are telling you could be a lie! So, have your wits about you and do not believe everything you hear.

@Caterham.High.SchoolMake sure your child knows that any photos and messages they share on Snapchat no longer disappear but can now be saved. The sender is then informed that the recipient is saving what they have posted. If your child is asked to send an image of themselves on Snapchat make sure your child knows the person who is asking for this and asks them why they want the image and what they are going to do with it. Be aware that what your child shares may not be going to the person/people they think they are sending them to. Sometimes the images are used in inappropriate, indecent ways, which is a criminal offence. Make sure your child posts decent photos of themselves only.
@Caterham.High.SchoolAPPRENTICESHIPS - Information for Sixth Form Students With the cost attending University increasing over recent years, more and more students are considering alternative pathways post Sixth Form. There has never been a better time to consider an apprenticeship. Young people can ‘get in and go far’ with an apprenticeship at some of Britain’s biggest and brightest companies. They can gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, in some cases up to degree level, while working and earning an income. In addition, more and more young people are following an apprenticeship pathway in order not to be burdened with paying thousands of pounds in student fees and loans. There are various levels of apprenticeship you can undertake depending on your current skills and qualifications: • Intermediate apprenticeship (level 2) • Advanced apprenticeship (level 3) • Higher apprenticeship (levels 4-7) • Degree apprenticeship (levels 6-7) All apprenticeships are real jobs so all apprentices earn a salary. You must be paid at least the national minimum apprenticeship wage – and many employers pay significantly more. Apprentices should work for at least 30 hours per week and an apprenticeship takes between one and five years to complete, depending upon the level of apprenticeship and the industry sector. Most of the training is delivered in the workplace, so you will learn the skills you need to do the job well. The rest of the training is given by a training organisation, either at the workplace, off-site or via e-learning. The training is specifically tailored to ensure that you develop the skills the employer wants, giving apprentices a real advantage in the workplace. This means that apprentices not only have better long term salary prospects, but they also have excellent progression opportunities, whether looking to study further or climb the ranks within the workplace.

You can search by keyword (job title, employer or reference number), by location (postcode, town or city), apprenticeship level, or category to suit your criteria. Applications for an Apprenticeships can be made at any time, but it is advisable to apply early. Year 12 and 13 students have recently had the opportunity to attend an Apprenticeship Assembly and Workshop, and there will be a further Workshop session for Year 12 students during the Sixth Form Careers Day in July Sixth
