Tips for applying for an apprenticeship

  1. Make sure you tailor your application to the apprenticeship you’re applying for using your experiences and hobbies. For example, if you’re applying for an apprenticeship in engineering, talk about relevant projects you’ve worked on in science or maths.

  2. Talk about your skills and qualities, not just your hobbies. For example, if you’ve been the captain of the school football team, this shows leadership and teamwork skills.

  3. The application form will be similar to a job application. You’ll need to provide examples to prove what you’re talking about. For example, if you say communication is a strength of yours, have evidence – like being on the school debating team – to back this up.

  4. Don’t just spellcheck your application – get someone to read through it before you submit it. Good spelling, punctuation, and grammar are important.
