What is the aim of the programme?
Our aim is to inspire young people about future opportunities within the insurance industry and improve understanding of the industry and job opportunities it presents.
To do this we are offering a programme with training and support for young people interested in finding out more about insurance who are currently attending schools local to Tesco Underwriting.
Participating students will then have the opportunity to apply for apprenticeships at Tesco Underwriting starting in September 2015.
What is the programme structure?
The programme consists of two events at Tesco Underwriting’ offices (Quorum Business Park, Longbenton) and two online challenges. Following the programme you will be invited to apply for apprenticeships with Tesco Underwriting which will commence in September 2015.

Please note, we are running a rolling recruitment for this programme and will close recruitment on 17th June or earlier if we have reached capacity.

It has inspired and encouraged me to take risks in my life and to get excited about what the future holds, at a time where it is easy to be stressed about what comes next.Participant 2014
The most informing, action-packed and enjoyable programme that I have ever been on. I certainly will not forgot it in a hurry and have learnt a great deal!Participant 2014
What will happen at the Launchpad event?
If you are selected for the Invest In Your Future programme following applying using the below form, you will be invited to attend an inspirational one-day programme delivered by Future Foundations and supported by volunteers from Tesco Underwriting and Kaplan at Tesco Underwriting’s offices in Longbenton.
The day will include presentation skills training, talks about different opportunities in insurance, interview skills training with a mock interview with business volunteers, a work based challenge with feedback and coaching on setting personal development goals.
Who should apply?
We are inviting ambitious current Year 13 students from schools local to Tesco Underwriting (Longbenton, Newcastle) to apply for this programme.
You do not need to know about insurance but have a potential interest in pursuing a career in the insurance industry. There is no expectation you will apply for an apprenticeship with Tesco Underwriting, in fact we are keen for you to find out if it’s an area of interest for you or not so you can make an informed application. Either way the programme has been designed to give you a platform for success in any industry you choose to pursue.
You need to be ambitious and willing to fully participate in the programme and available to attend both events.
Every applicant will receive information and guidance about future opportunities in finance. Selected students will be invited to join the Invest in Your Future programme. Good luck with your application!
Who is running the programme?
The programme has been developed by a partnership of the following organisations:
Kaplan help companies to recruit and develop apprenticeships by providing support with recruitment and through their training and qualifications. They create apprenticeships which include work-based training where students earn a weekly wage as soon as they start and lead to professionally recognised qualifications.
Future Foundations is an independent training organisation committed to inspiring young people to achieve their full potential and become leaders in their lives so they can contribute their skills, talents and passion to society.
