Kaplan Podcast - University vs Apprenticeships

A image of a microphone, with the words Kaplan’s Learn Better Podcast

We discuss the big question: What do I do next?

Kaplan’s Learn Better Podcast is our brand new series, covering topical subjects to support our past, present, and future learners to succeed in both their studies and careers.

In our first episode, host Stuart Pedley Smith, Head of Learning, and guest, help clarify the differences between pursuing the University vs Apprenticeships route into work.

Joined by Apprenticeships Partnerships Director, Jenny Pelling, this episode covers where the job market is going, the difference in learning experiences, and how apprenticeships have become a genuine alternative to University.

From practical application, to freedom of exploration, and the importance of money to personal development, this podcast will help you to understand the key questions you must ask yourself to decide what route is right for you.

Key topics:

  • Pros and cons of Apprenticeships
  • Pros and cons of University
  • Where the job market is going
  • What questions you need to ask yourself to make an informed decision
  • Where to find further information.
