School to Work

My Gateway works with schools to help students start their careers in apprenticeships or traineeships.

We do this through:

Our School to Work program

School based apprenticeships and traineeships (SBATs)

Career expos and other school-focused events

Providing guidance and support to students, parents, teachers, careers advisors and host businesses

School to Work Program

A dedicated School to Work Partner can visit your school and provide inspiration and information on undertaking an apprenticeship or traineeship.

During a School to Work session, students will learn about apprenticeships and traineeships, how they work and what they can get out of undertaking these pathways. They will also learn about the different industries they can gain an apprenticeship or traineeship in, and what employers expect from them in the workplace.
