Finding an apprenticeship
Gov.uk apprenticeship vacancy service
Gov.uk provides an online vacancy search to help you find an apprenticeship. Its a great idea to set up an account on the site so that you don't miss out on applying for apprenticeships you are interested in.
- apply for apprenticeships
- get email and text alerts about new apprenticeships and your applications
- track your applications.
Note: Most apprenticeships will be listed on the gov.uk website. However, you could also search a company or college website to check for additional vacancies.
Other ways to find an apprenticeship
Through a provider
local providers such as colleges and training providers will also
advertise apprenticeship vacancies on their websites. You can find which
providers are local to you in Find a Provider.
Looking on job vacancy sites
Another place to look can be on the big national job vacancy sites, which also include local search options.
Example sites include:
Try entering "apprentice" in the 'job title' box and your nearest town or city in the 'location' box. Some of these will allow you to upload your CV so that employers can search for you. You can also set up email alerts to your inbox when they have vacancies that match your chosen criteria such as location, job category or keywords.
