"Thanks to the support from South Hunsley Sixth Form and the opportunities that the staff gave me to network with employers, I managed to find my dream Digital Marketing Apprenticeship at Divine Clark PR. I studied Business at A Level and I'm delighted to say that there has been so much crossover with the subject and the world of work. It's all being put to good use so far and I'm excited to see what projects come up in the future."

"Since leaving school in 2017, I took a bit of time out to decide what I wanted to do next and soon realised the apprenticeship route was for me. I came across an apprenticeship provider in Hull, applied and within a few weeks I landed an interview here and it's honestly been one of the best things I've ever done."
- Sofia C, Accounts and Marketing Manager at Orovia Group Ltd
"I studied A Level Business, Economics, Financial Studies & Core Maths which provided me with a vast range of knowledge to support me in my apprenticeship as a Commercial Insurance Broker with Towergate Insurance Brokers.
I attend client meetings whether this be at our office, the clients premises or via Microsoft Teams to arrange their Commercial Insurance Policies and provide guidance and support in the event of a claim.
Apprenticeships were commonly promoted at South Hunsley with regular Career Fairs and Employer visits which provided a real insight into the life of an apprentice within a broad range of industries."
