Three new apprenticeship roles have been created for talented individuals leaving post 16 education at Todmorden High School to join its support staff team.

The school has been transformed over the last two years.

In March this year the school was judged to be ‘Good’ by Ofsted for this first time and all staff are fully committed to working hard to ensure that Todmorden’s community school becomes ‘Outstanding’ next time around, said headteacher Mr Andrew Whitaker.

The school is now seeking to employ apprentices to join the vibrant school community to kick start their careers.

Mr Whitaker said: “As a school we are committed to providing the very best education for all our students regardless of their background or starting point.

“We nurture ambition within our students and encourage them to work towards their goals in life.

“I truly believe that every young person has the potential to become a leader in their field and that we, as adults, should give children and young people the confidence and skills to realise this potential.

“University is not always the right choice for talented individuals when they leave Post 16 education and this is why we wanted to create these opportunities within our school.

“We will support and develop these apprentices to ensure that they have a fantastic start to their career which will set them up for life.”

The school is recruiting for apprentices to support the ICT, Finance and Administration teams with what Mr Whitaker says is a “fantastic” support package.
