National Apprenticeship Service | Career Takeoff

Addressed low awareness and interest in applying for Apprenticeships in deprived communities across Merseyside via an interactive and aspirational campaign.

#TeenStrategy Objective:

Address the low awareness and interest in Apprenticeships to young people in Merseyside particularly within deprived and hard-to-reach communities.

#TeenStrategy Solution:

Understand the issues around the apathy towards Apprenticeships and create a campaign that would address this and increase application rates.

Activated #TeenStrategy:

  • Arranged and delivered research with target groups
  • Gained understanding of the barriers to engage
  • Worked with young people to create an engaging campaign
  • Developed the ‘Career take-off’ concept with a ‘live information’ device
  • Distributed personalised material via multiple channels

#TeenStrategy Success:

  • The ‘Takeoff’ campaign resulted in a significant numbers of young people attending apprenticeship events and signing up to the national Apprenticeship database
  • The ‘career take-off’ brand was nationally applauded and resulted in an invitation to speak at the national ERSA Employability Conference
