How to Sign Up for an Apprenticeship

When vacancies arise, sign up for an apprenticeship as soon as possible — businesses can close the hiring phase early based on the number of applications received.

Take the time to research the job opening and the personal preferences thoroughly. You will want to state any relevant work experience to confirm that this is something you want to do and to help you improve your CV.

Check the start date of the apprenticeship, whether you are in school or college, to guarantee that you will have finished it! Smaller companies usually advertise work vacancies two to three months before the start date.

Examine the job description for the necessary credentials and personal characteristics. Then, find examples of what you’ve mastered to demonstrate what they want.

Don’t be scared to be yourself; make sure you don’t oversell yourself! Be confident in what you’ve done and what you should offer the manager. However, be cautious about overselling since something you write will be elaborated on during an interview.

Check the grammar and readability. Has anyone else double-checked it for you? Typos are easy to create, but they can count against you in a competitive field and be seen as a lack of attention to detail.

Employers will have specific qualifications for candidates, as stated in the job description. There are a couple that you can want to demonstrate evidence of on your CV, forms, and cover letters.

When providing personal contact details, ensure your email address and any voicemail greeting on your mobile phone are appropriate for an employer!
