WHAT ARE THE LEVELS OF APPRENTICESHIP?
There are four types of apprenticeship: Intermediate, Advanced, Higher, and Degree. It will depend on the job role and your prior qualifications and experience as to which level you will need to start at.
IS GETTING AN APPRENTICESHIP COMPETITIVE?
Securing an apprenticeship is the same as getting any other job: there will be other applicants and youʼll need to impress to get shortlisted. Stand out by researching the employer, identifying the skills and qualities that make you unique and tailoring your application form.
HOW DOES THE APPLICATION PROCESS WORK?
The organisation will usually advertise on the Find an apprenticeship website, so you will be able to apply online. After the closing date, the employer will shortlist the applicants. Interviews could be a mixture of face to face meetings, online tests, and assessment centres.
DO YOU NEED ENGLISH AND MATHS?
Some employers ask for English and Maths GCSE before you start. However, if you donʼt have English and Maths it doesnʼt mean you canʼt do an apprenticeship. If youʼre willing to work towards Functional Skills then you will still be able to achieve your apprenticeship.
