Rebecca Shaxton from ASK Apprenticeships recently gave a talk on apprenticeships to Year 13 students (https://amazingapprenticeships.com/about-ask/). The session provided an overview of the types of apprenticeships available, how to apply for them and a guide to the whole application process. Click for Rebecca's presentation How to register, search and apply on 'Find an Apprenticeship'.
Students were advised to register with 'Find an Apprenticeship' by following this link: https://www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship. It was also recommended that they regularly check the following site: https://amazingapprenticeships.com/vacancies/ for vacancies at some of the UKs biggest employers.
Most applications for apprenticeships do not open until December time, with assessment days happening in the new year. A further session with ASK Apprenticeships at this time will help the students who decide to put forward an application. Students have been advised to also put in an application to UCAS in order to keep their options open.
