Richard Marsh, National Apprenticeship Service to answer students’ questions on The Student Room


Set-up by the National Apprenticeship Service – the organisation responsible for Apprenticeships in England- National Apprenticeship Week runs from 6 – 10 February and aims to raise the profile of apprenticeships and to increase the number of opportunities available to employers and learners.

For the second year running The Student Room – the UK’s largest student site – is supporting Apprenticeships Week through it’s dedicated Apprenticeship forum.

This year we have Richard Marsh, Head of Programme Development at the National Apprenticeship Service on the site to answer students’ questions about apprenticeships.

The Q&A is something that has been successful in the past with Lord Browne and David Willetts and will give students the chance to talk to a key figurehead in the world of apprenticeships.

Over 1 million students will visit The Student Room during Apprenticeships Week and questions are already being posted by students wanting more information about these vocational qualifications.

In addition to this The Student Room has an Apprenticeship Wiki that provides lots of information to students about a range of useful information:

  • Who can do an apprenticechip?
  • What type are available?
  • What are the entry requirements?
  • What training is involved?
  • What’s the pay like?
  • Where can they be found?
