Applying for an apprenticeship is the equivalent of applying for a professional position or a university course. It requires careful research and planning of the application, however, unlike applying for university there are not set deadlines. Apprenticeship applications will open and close throughout Year 13 and have to be applied for when they open.
An apprenticeship is an opportunity for you to gain skills and a qualification, whilst earning a real salary.
Rather than paying for training or a degree, you are employed by an organisation who pay for your training in a nationally recognised qualification.
