Supporting our students

This strand of the programme aims to support young Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students to gain an insight into apprenticeship pathways. In cohorts of 12, the programme seeks to improve the self-confidence of students by developing their understanding of their own personality traits and how these relate to employer requirements.
