Description

Lloyds Banking Group Apprenticeship Scheme: Online Workshop


As part of the School to Work Programme, Lloyds Banking Group have teamed up with Class Careers to give your students an exclusive insight into the world of banking, and what it's really like to work with them.

Held in the comfort of your own classroom, your students will watch a short video about the Lloyds Banking Group apprenticeship scheme, before chatting directly with a current apprentice or graduate.

All the chats are held online, on a one-to-one basis, giving your students the opportunity to ask whatever they like and get real, honest responses from one of our team.

This event is fully funded by Lloyds Banking Group, so there is no cost to schools and colleges.

If you are a single student wanting to take part in this workshop (ie. not as part of your school or college), you can! Just register with us and fill in the fields that are relevant to you.
