Apprenticeships & Other School Leaver Roles

The Brokerage Fast Track Programme

Are you in year 13? Are you looking for a degree apprenticeship or school leaver programme after finishing sixth form or college? Looking at alternatives to university? Then The Brokerage Fast Track programme might be for you!

Fast Track is our programme for year 13 students who wish to pursue a career in the financial, professional and related services, but who want to start work straight away and not take the university route.

As a Fast Track candidate, you will be able to apply to a range of apprenticeship opportunities with some of London’s leading employers that are exclusive to Fast Track candidates. These include apprenticeships from Level 3 up to degree level apprenticeships.

You will also be able to attend an array of skills development training sessions to help make you an outstanding candidate. These include:

  • CV and cover letter workshops
  • Insight days and networking events
  • Masterclasses
  • Mock assessment centres
  • Pre-interview coaching

How to get involved

Step 1. Please register your interest here.

Step 2. If you are eligbile, you will receive an email from us inviting you to take part in group registration session via Zoom. Those that are not eligble, will receive an ineligibility email.

Step 3. Attend a group session via Zoom so we can found out a little bit about you and discuss how we can support you to be a high quality candidate that will impress our corporate partners.

Once you have completed these three steps, you will start receiving job opportunities and invitations to attend skills development training sessions.

Please note that to take part, you must:

  • Have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the past six years
    OR previous generations in your family haven’t attended university in the UK
  • Have attained grades 9-5 at GCSE English Literature, English Language and Mathematics
  • Be eligible to work in the UK
  • Attend a state school


I attended workshops which helped me to practise interview skills, improve my CV and prep for assessment centre tests. Before the interview the team ensured I was ready and afterwards they called me to find out how it went. Without the support I received from The Brokerage I wouldn’t be here today.
