AstraZeneca offer some fabulous Degree Apprenticeships, and we are so grateful to Scott Staple for hosting a seminar with four of our Year 12 students interested in this pathway.

Scott completed his HR Degree Apprenticeship last year. When he applied, there were four different streams of apprenticeship available at the company, now there are fifteen, and last year there were a total of 70 apprentices.

Our students were able to ask Scott questions about work/life balance, how much study time is required per week, what the application process looks like and how best to prepare for interview.

Scott shared some invaluable tips, perhaps the best being that it is not just important to demonstrate skills we know about, such as communication, team work and initiative, but candidates should focus on evidencing their ability to learn the new skills of the future.
