Finding an Apprenticeship might seem extremely daunting but it really isn’t. Head to the Apprenticeships’ website (www.apprenticeships.org.uk) – register your details, and search for the vacancy that suits you; it’s that simple!
If you apply for a vacancy and you are successful/ unsuccessful in your application, then you will be alerted of this on your ‘Home Page’; where you can also manage your pending applications.
If your application is unsuccessful, then the manager of the organisation that you applied to may contact you via phone or email to give you feedback on why you didn’t get the vacancy. This gives you the opportunity to improve your details in order to give you a better chance of beating other applicants in the future.
However, if successful in your application, your employer or training provider will contact you and arrange a meeting with you. This may be an interview, assessment or formal meeting, depending on what the vacancy is far; but there is no need to be intimidated by it.
They will not be trying to catch you out, but they will want to get to know you in depth as they will be paying your salary.
So visit the Apprenticeships Website and embark on your career as an apprentice.
