What makes a good apprenticeship application? Employers are looking for potential so concentrate on selling your soft skills and bringing to life your personality instead of trying to emphasise all the experience you have. Research the company and reference them in your cover letter – be clear on why you want an apprenticeship with them specifically.
Which industries typically hire apprentices? Apprenticeships can be found across all sectors, but there are some where they are more common – engineering, IT, finance and healthcare to give a few examples. Degree apprenticeships, which combine university study and work, are limited to a few specific sectors such as PR, science and digital.
Are you guaranteed a job at the end of an apprenticeship? Not necessarily but most apprentices do get a job. Even if the situation changes and you don’t get a job with the company you have been apprenticing for, you should be well ahead of the competition when it comes to getting similar jobs at other companies.
Are apprenticeships just for university students and graduates? Absolutely not. While some apprenticeships take place in conjunction with a university degree and others ask for a degree, there are many more aimed at school-leavers.
