An apprenticeship lets you learn and earn money at the same time. You work for an employer and pick up professional skills on the job in anything from accountancy to zoology, alongside going to college. You can gain nationally recognised qualifications from Level 2 right up to degree level. I have attached some documents you may find useful, one of which details A-Z all of the areas in which apprenticeships are available
Applying for an apprenticeship is the same as applying for a job. You will need to complete an application form and attend an interview. Competition for some roles is tough, so the sooner you start looking and applying the more chance you have of securing your dream job.
Most apprenticeships are advertised on the government website : https://www.findapprenticeship.service.gov.uk/apprenticeshipsearch You will need to register on here so you can apply for any roles you are interested in
TOP TIP: Do not put any keywords in search box, as this may mean you miss out on a vacancy you could have been interested in. For example, a car mechanic may be advertised as Car Mechanic, Vehicle Maintenance , Mechanical Engineer etc… and if your keyword doesn’t show in the title it will not show up the vacancies.
