Industry Challenge – Brief

  • We want to create an interactive game which informs and tests students about Apprenticeships.
  • Using Scratch, create a project which will be both fun and informative for players and will teach them about apprenticeships.
  • The game can be designed however you want, but must use ALL of the provided apprenticeship facts!

Industry Challenge – Apprenticeship Facts

  • An apprenticeship is employment mixed with training that is linked to your job.
  • You’ll learn on the job with your employer and off the job at college.
  • As a guide, the duration of an apprenticeship is generally between 10 to 18 months
  • There are different levels of apprenticeship:
    Level 2: equivalent to GCSEs, A* to C grades or Scottish National 5
    Level 3: equivalent to A-Levels or Scottish Highers
    Level 4: equivalent to HNDs or foundation degrees
  • The national minimum wage for an apprentice is £2.73 per hour. The employer may choose to pay more.
  • An apprenticeship will help open doors to contacts in the Creative Industries, provide paid work and give you the skills and experience employers are asking for as well as a nationally recognised qualification.
