How do I Get an Apprenticeship

An apprenticeship is a well-paying job that often offers valuable training. Therefore, you will apply for it the same way you would for a job.

Here are some of our best tips for applying for an apprenticeship:

  1. Research the apprenticeship thoroughly. You’ll need to know the job inside and out with your resume and any potential interviews – you can check work opportunities on our website. Check to see whether there is a phone number you can call for an informal conversation about the job – don’t be afraid to ask questions if you are unsure.
  2. Make a list of your achievements, interests, and wishes. Please print it out and have it with you until you apply for your application. If you get stuck, you can return to it in the application. You must compare and contrast the experience with what the employer and training organisation want in their job requirements.
  3. Ensure your application is tailored to the job you’re applying for. Connect your former interests and hobbies to the work you’ll be doing during your apprenticeship. For example, if you’re applying for an engineering apprenticeship, talk about some similar science or math ventures you’ve worked on.
  4. It would help if you were willing to ask for advice. If you’re stuck, ask your teachers, friends, and family to share your top three qualities to help you get started.
  5. Not only your desires but also your talents and capabilities should be discussed. For example, if you were captain of your school football team, this reflects your ability to lead and coordinate.
  6. The hiring method will be the same as it is with a job. You may need to have explanations to back up the arguments. For example, if you feel that teamwork is one of your strengths, have evidence – such as joining the school debating team – to back this up.
  7. Don’t just spellcheck the application; have someone else review it before submitting it. It is essential to use correct spelling, punctuation, and pronunciation.

Best of luck with your applications!
