Applying for Apprenticeships

Applying for an Apprenticeship can be confusing. You will usually have an interview at college and an interview with a company. To make it easier for you, we have broken it down into the possible routes below:

Apply direct to the college for an Apprenticeship within a curriculum area

You can apply direct to the college for an Apprenticeship within a specific area e.g. business admin by either applying online, using the college application form, or if your school uses it, via UCAS Progress.

You will go through the same assessment/interview process as our full time students. If the learning assessment officer thinks that you are suitable for an Apprenticeship they will make you a ‘conditional’ offer. A ‘conditional offer’ means that you will need to meet the entry criteria for the course outlined in the prospectus, plus you will be required to find suitable employment before your course starts. You can’t start an Apprenticeship without an employer.

We work with lots of employers who are looking for apprentices. Our learning assessment officers will then help you secure employment, either by asking you to send your details on to suitable vacancies, or by passing them on your behalf.

Apply for a specific vacancy advertised either on our website or on the National Apprenticeship website

We list all our Apprenticeship vacancies on the college website If you would like to apply for a specific vacancy then you can complete the college application form (on paper). Where you are asked to add the course title to the application form you just need to write the vacancy number and curriculum area (e.g. Vacancy VAC000725987 engineering)

Alternatively you can look on the National Apprenticeship website and apply for vacancies via this site. You just need to complete their online application.

Once we receive your applications we will invite you in for an interview with a learning assessment officer who shortlist on behalf of the company. They then recommend suitable candidates for the post to be interviewed by the company.

At interview we will be also be able to let you know about other suitable vacancies that you might be interested in applying for.

Apply direct to a company

Some companies advertise their own vacancies so it is useful to keep an eye on the local press and talk to your careers advisers. You will apply direct to the company and go through their interview process. This will still include an interview with a college learning assessment officer to check you can complete the course.

How we support you finding an employer

We will keep your details on record and send them to companies with vacancies that we think you will be suitable for. We take into account where you live, what your actual / predicated GCSEs are, and any area of specialism you have identified.  However we also recommend that you continue to look for an employer at the same time.

A good CV is key to helping you get an interview. If you are struggling with writing a CV then you can use the link on our website, or the national careers service website).

We also offer workshops to help you with CV writing and interview skills. You can book into these by contacting schoolsliaison@kirkleescollege.ac.uk
