As you get closer towards the end of your Apprenticeship you need to start thinking about the next step! Some of you may have not been thinking much further than the apprenticeship itself so the whole thing can be quite daunting.
First things first, know your options! You need to know what is available in order to make an informed decision. Speak to your assessor, manager and even a Job Centre advisor!
Finding a job
If you started your apprenticeship straight from school then the thought of finding a job may be scary, make sure you do plenty of research and put the skills you’ve learnt into practise – if you need some extra help we’ve got some handy posts on CV tips and Interview tips!
You may be lucky enough to be offered a permanent position at the company! However if this hasn’t been mentioned try talking to your manager about current vacancies within the company and give clear, concrete examples of how you are an asset to the company.
You may want to further your education, look at all your options whether it’s a higher level apprenticeship, university or a different route!
Finishing an apprenticeship is only the start of your career. Do your research, ask advice and make an informed decision!
