How To Go About Getting An Apprenticeship

An apprenticeship is a paid job that also includes training. Therefore, you must apply the same way you would for a job.

Complete thorough research of the apprenticeship

You’ll need to know the role inside and out for your application and any potential interviews. Also, check to see if there is a phone number you can call for an informal talk about the job – don’t be hesitant to ask questions if you are unsure about anything.

Make a list of your achievements, interests, and hobbies

Print it out and bring it with you when you apply. If you get stuck, you may refer to it throughout your application. You must contrast your experience with what the company and training provider want in their job description.

Make sure that your application is suited to the job you’re seeking

Connect your prior experiences and interests to the work you’ll be performing in the apprenticeship. Discuss similar projects you’ve worked on in science or math, for example, if you’re seeking an engineering apprenticeship.

You should be able to compose a personal statement on yourself

If you’re stuck, ask your teachers, friends, and family to select your top three characteristics to help you get started.

Discuss your strengths and characteristics, not just your hobbies

For example, becoming captain of your school football team showcases your leadership and teamwork ability.

The application form will be similar to the one used for a job

You’ll need to present instances to back up your claims. For example, if you mention that communication is one of your talents, offer evidence to back this up, such as being a school debate team member.

Don’t just spellcheck your application; get it reviewed by someone else before sending it 

It is essential to employ correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
