Scholarships and Apprenticeships
At Venture we are committed to helping our students find the best opportunities on every pathway for when they leave. In addition to the Gresham’s Scholarship the Academy has built some superb links with local industry to be able to offer several guaranteed apprenticeships.
Venture Students who have started scholarships / apprenticeships as a direct result of the Academy’s links with various companies.
The successful students have had to pass a rigorous application process including writing a letter expressing interest, conducting a presentation and sitting a formal interview before starting with the companies.

Students have also gained a place on the prestigious Elite Football programme hosted by East Norfolk Sixth Form College; run by the Community Sports Foundation of Norwich City Football Club. Students have travelled far a field to compete against teams from all around the country.
Our link with BWell Health Club in Gorleston has resulted in opportunities for students to gain extra work experience and develop key skills. Each year group of students begin a ‘scholarship’ with BWell with one student gaining part-time employment with them when they finish at Venture.
