Listen out for Arman Hussain on Scotland's airwaves
Listen out for AAT on the airwaves over the next few weeks as our 2011 recruitment campaign gets underway.
Radio commercials featuring some of our talented Scottish students can be heard on Clyde 1 from the 8th-21st August and you should also see some adverts in the press.
Employers: Are you interested in recruiting an AAT apprentice straight from school?
Although there are more people struggling to get into college, university or employment, they can be hard to find.
We’ve put together seven tips to help you find someone like Gemma Oliver, our AAT student case study pictured above:
1. Get the timing right: School leavers operate on a different time table to graduates and most will be making their decisions this autumn about whether to apply to college or accept university places.
If you want to attract the best talent to your scheme then it is important to engage with schools from August to February in the run up to your 2012 recruitment or you will have to wait until the results are out in August to pick up those who don’t get their first choice.
Lastly, the summer is also a good time to advertise in Further Education colleges and with university careers services to pick up one of the many students every year who have decided further academic study isn’t for them after all.
Employers: Are you looking to take on a school leaver to progress through a government funded AAT place?
Kaplan Financial are running their 2nd annual summer school this year between July 26th – 29th 2011, and have been working with schools all over Scotland to recruit the very best students to attend. This takes a large part of the burden of finding a suitable school leaver off employers’ hands.
