In the unfortunate event that your employer is making you redundant before the end of your apprenticeship, we can offer support and guidance to help you seek employment for the remaining duration of your apprenticeship programme.
As your training provider we may still be able to offer training in the short term whilst our Careers team support you to help find a new employer. We can provide advice and guidance, and signposting to resources such as how to approach employers and understanding your skills.
If you are at risk of redundancy or have been made redundant please contact the Apprenticeships team at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out if there are current vacancies with our University of Brighton partner organisations.
You can also contact our Careers team on Facebook and via Twitter and you can follow our careers blog for career development news, events and opportunities.
