  • Accenture Software Engineering Apprenticeships - 05/03/2019 - bmccarthy

    Target

    Dear Students,

    Please see below a new opportunity from TARGETcareers. If you are interested in finding out more you can  visit the TARGETcareers website.

    Thank you.

    Accenture

     

    Thinking about future career plans, and which path is right for you? If you’re considering alternatives to university, an apprenticeship at Accenture can offer a blend of real project work, top-class mentorship and training, and a structured degree programme – all while earning a salary.

    So, what do we do at Accenture? In short, our mission is to improve the way the world works and lives. We partner with clients to optimise their processes and performance by applying cutting-edge technologies and digital innovation, to drive positive change and deliver transformative solutions.

    We believe powerful minds can make unique contributions, and we’re looking for talented people to help us achieve our ambitions. If you have a genuine passion and curiosity for technology, you might like to consider our apprentice opportunities in Technology.

    Want to hear from those in the know? Read below from Rob O’Connor, one of our Software Engineering apprentices:

    I chose an apprenticeship with Accenture because I loved the idea of how many different clients and industries Accenture works across – this meant more opportunity and a chance to see what area suited me best. I love being able to make a difference in people’s lives with my work.

    I will have 4 years of relevant industry experience when I receive my full degree, putting me at a distinct advantage over a recent uni graduate. I would argue that experience is more important than a degree, but with this apprenticeship I am getting both.

    To get insights from more of our apprentices read their stories on our UK culture blog. To find out how an Accenture apprenticeship could kickstart your career in technology, check out our Youtube Channel and follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram too.

  • The Royal College of Midwives - Careers Advice - 27/09/2018 - bmccarthy

    Midwives

    The Royal College of Midwives are passionate about midwifery and hope to inspire students to embark on a rewarding career supporting women and their families through pregnancy, childbirth and the early days of parenting. The Royal College of Midwives is the only professional organisation and trade union dedicated to serving midwifery and the whole midwifery team. They provide workplace advice and support, professional and clinical guidance and information, and learning opportunities with their broad range of events, conferences and online resources.

    They would like to offer information surrounding choosing midwifery as a career. They have included two of their latest publications: ’The State of Maternity Services Report 2018 – Scotland’ and also ‘Midwifery in Scotland: into the 2020s’, to share with students who may be interested in pursuing midwifery as a career.

    They wanted to ensure that you are aware that there are now job opportunities and vacancies for newly qualified midwives all over Scotland – this is a very different situation from the situation experienced a few years ago where there weren’t many jobs available.  This is a result of a larger number of midwives retiring over the last few years.

    Have you thought about a career in midwifery? Do you know what the role of a midwife involves?

    Being a midwife is more than just delivering babies.  A midwife is usually the first and main contact for woman during pregnancy, throughout labour and the early postnatal period. She/he is responsible for providing care and supporting women to make informed choices about their care. The role of the midwife is very diverse. Clinical examinations, providing health and parent education and supporting the mother and her family throughout the childbearing process are only a few roles that a midwife will carry out. The midwife also works in partnership with other health and social care services to meet individual mothers’ needs, for example, teenage mothers, mothers who are socially excluded, disabled mothers and mothers from diverse ethnic backgrounds.

    Today, a large number of midwives do significant work within the community, providing their services to local clinics, women’s homes, GP surgeries and children’s centres. They also have the option to take up a hospital-based job. In a hospital setting, midwives get numerous opportunities to work in the antenatal and labour as well as the postnatal wards.

    As a midwife, your qualifications and midwifery experience will open up a range of options for career development and you can choose the path that suits you best.   Some midwives pursue careers in midwifery education and research, others specialise in caring for women with mental health problems or substance misuse issues, others develop additional skills in ultrasound scanning or sexual health.  Midwives work in dense urban areas or remote and rural communities in the Highlands and Islands.

    Midwives need to have empathy, they need great communication skills and the desire to serve their local community. Midwives need to be curious and interested in learning about people, human relationships and physiology and psychology.  Midwives need to be able to translate their learning into responding effectively to rapidly emerging emergency situations, providing life saving care when it is needed. Midwives need to be able to work autonomously and also to work collaboratively with others in teams.

    If you are interested in a health related career you are recommended to seek out opportunities to spend time with and talk to a midwife in your local area before applying to understand more about the role.

    It is hoped that the new Royal College of Midwives publication and report highlights the need for new student midwives and generates interest in following this career path.

    If you would like to receive further information regarding The Royal College of Midwives or careers in midwifery, you can get in touch, or visit our website at www.rcm.org.uk

  • A Year In Industry with EDT - 17/04/2018 - bmccarthy

    EDT Industrial Cadets

    Year in Industry Placement Opportunities

    This may be of particular interest to our S5/6 pupils who successfully completed their Industrial Cadets Challenger Level course.

    Established over 30 years ago, the EDT provides over 40,000 work related practical learning experiences each year through taster days, industry led projects and placements to aspire young people considering a STE(A)M based career.

    The nationally recognised Industrial Cadets accreditation is a quality standard for programmes to meet a national standard of excellence. The introduction of Industrial Cadets strengthens EDT’s links between educators, partners and employers and continues to enable organisations to make invaluable connections with STE(A)M based young talent across the UK.

    The Year in Industry (YINI) programme offers students the opportunity to gain professional development by working at a reputable company. EDT will help place students in top UK companies every year. They have placements for students who are interested in a career in all areas of engineering, science, IT, business, marketing and finance, the programme lasts for 12 months and is a paid placement.

    EDT’s placements offer students the skills and knowledge that employers are looking for. Around a quarter of all their students are sponsored through university each year, and many of their 300 partner companies see The Year in Industry as an important part of their graduate recruitment programme.

    For the duration of the placements students will work on projects that will enable them to gain valuable work experience that employers are looking for.  They will receive full support from The Year in Industry through a year-long mentoring service including on-site visits from the YINI team.  They have a maths course for keeping skills up to date and free master class workshops on a variety of topics.

    Applications are online and the link to apply, with further information, can be found here http://www.etrust.org.uk/the-year-in-industry/apply-now

    Link to the current vacancies around the UK can be found at http://www.etrust.org.uk/year-industry/vacancies and we will be adding many more.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND Q&A

    FAQs and how the scheme works

    When do placements start and finish?

    This varies from company to company. Most placements start In July/August/September and finish July to Sept of the following year.

    What kind of work do students do?

    They may be carrying out research, designing prototypes, planning projects, handling customers’ needs; managing projects, manipulating data, modelling or devising new working methods, fault finding & process improvement, test & verification, CAD work. Projects vary considerably and are dependent on company needs.   The placements are wide ranging in engineering, science, technology, maths, business, finance and many more disciplines.

    Where are placements located?

    We place students throughout the United Kingdom. Ability to be flexible about location increases the students’ chance of finding a placement but we try to work with students own preferences wherever possible.

    Can students live away from home?

    Yes, many of our students do. They often arrange house shares with other students placed in their area.

    What choice do students have about companies?

    We aim to match students with a company, which will give them relevant experience, but we cannot guarantee the student a placement in a specific company or sector. We are happy to follow up contacts students may already have in companies of their choice.

    How much are students paid?

    As a guide, salaries can range around £12,000 – £15,000+ p.a. depending on your entry level (i.e. Pre-university or Undergraduate). Undergraduates can earn up to £17K +

    Is there a chance of sponsorship for University or graduate opportunities?

    Certainly. Many of our companies use the scheme to select for sponsorships, vacation work and future graduate employment.

    Is there a chance of getting onto a company Higher Apprenticeship?

    Yes, a small number of YINI students will go onto join their placement company’s apprenticeship scheme on completion of their placement.

    What do Universities think if pre-university students opt to take part in The Year in Industry?

    Students should tell their admissions tutor that they are considering ‘deferred entry’. In almost every case they encourage industrial experience. It may be better to get a Year in Industry placement confirmed before definitely deferring. Ask your first choice and reserve universities what their cut off date is for deferring.

    What support does the scheme offer during the year’s work?

    A mentor service throughout the placement with mentors visiting the student at their place of work.

    What else does YINI offer?

    • To get you ahead of the game in the work environment, we offer optional free employability/leadership workshops.
    • All students are encouraged to register for Professional Institute Membership.

    Are students guaranteed a place on the scheme?

    No. There is competition for places, as demand for placements always exceeds supply. The final decision rests with companies, who will be influenced by examination grades/ Module results personal qualities, and motivation.

    20180328_140457[1] 20180328_140730[1] 20180328_140348[1]

    Well done to Trinity’s own Michael Adesuyi, James Hannaway and Conor O’Donnell on successfully completing the ‘Get Into Engineering’ course organised and delivered by our very valued partners Clyde Gateway, Robertson Construction, University of the West of Scotland and Glasgow Kelvin College.

    The ‘Get Into Engineering’ course is now in its 5th year and has steadily grown in numbers of participants, activities and, more importantly, value. It has become a mainstay of the S5 curriculum calendar for the lucky few who successfully navigate an application leeting process followed by a competitive interview. Even these early stages are important in introducing the pupils to what they can expect from the world of work in general.

    Pupils can then enjoy a whole range of activities from an online ‘Health and Safety’ course prior to picking up invaluable experience when visiting ‘live’ Robertson Construction sites to College/University developed engineering activities such as rocket car design, friction and aerodynamics.

    The pupils clearly enjoyed the whole experience and this was reflected in the enthusiastic and engaging presentations delivered by each of them.

    Thanks again to Clyde Gateway, Robertson Construction, UWS and Glasgow Kelvin College and we’re already looking forward to next year.

  • Apprenticeship Awareness Week - 15/02/2018 - bmccarthy

    SLCollege

    With option choices fast approaching you may be considering a Foundation Apprenticeship (FA), or perhaps you’re still a little unsure as to what a FA is.

    A Foundation Apprenticeship is a fantastic way for pupils to learn the skills required for their chosen field/industry by undertaking periods of work experience and college based learning. Pupils would be working towards an industry recognised FA qualification which can lead directly into a Modern Apprenticeship, when you can start to earn a wage whilst continuing to learn the trade, or it can be used as part entry to a university degree course. Either way it is an extremely valuable qualification to have.

    But how does it work? A FA is selected as one of your option choices alongside English, History or Business Management, but it would require you to attend college on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon as part of your normal weekly timetable. All other times and days outwith college time will be spent working on your other option choices in school.

    As part of Apprenticeship Awareness Week, South Lanarkshire College are offering our pupils the opportunity to attend taster sessions held on the college campus. This is an opportunity for pupils to find out more information on the Foundation Apprenticeship courses they have available and to ask questions and/or pick up some valuable advice and tips. To assist pupils, the school will be offering transport to and from these taster sessions for anyone who wishes to find out more about them.

    So what’s on offer at these taster sessions? There are 2 courses to find out about:

    Course: Foundation Apprentice Social Services: Children & Young People
    Date:   Tuesday 6th March 2018
    Time:    1.30pm and 2.30pm
    Location: South Lanarkshire College Room 130
    Who: S4 pupils who wish to study a childcare qualification in S5 and S6 while remaining at school.
    Activity:   A demonstration of play activities by current FAs linked to children’s development. Meet college staff to discuss course content, career progression and employment opportunities.

    There is also the following course to find out about:

    Course: Foundation Apprentice: Social Services and Healthcare
    Date:   Tuesday 6th March 2018
    Time:  1.30pm-3.30pm
    Location: South Lanarkshire College Room 130
    Who:  S4 pupils who wish to study a healthcare qualification in S5 and S6 while continuing at school.
    Activity:  Meet college staff to discuss course content, career progression and employment opportunities.

    Any S4 pupil interested in attending these taster sessions should give their name to Mr McCarthy as soon as possible.

    There is also the possibility of a taster session on Monday, 05 March, for those interested in Hairdressing. Again, if this is of interest to any pupil, please give your name to Mr McCarthy ASAP.
