How to Get Started

The first question to ask yourself is are you ready for work and do you know the sort of work you would like to do? If the answer is ‘yes’ use the ‘Training Search’ facility on the home page to find local training organisations that can help you find the Apprenticeship that you are looking for. You can also register on the national apprenticeship website as this is another way to find current vacancies and apply for them – more information is here.

If you feel that you are nearly ready for an apprenticeship but may need a little more help to be ready then, as long as you are aged 16-24 you can do a Traineeship. Use the ‘Training Search’ facility on the home page to find local training organisations that can help you find the Traineeship that you are looking for. You can also register on the national apprenticeship website as this is another way to find current Traineeship vacancies and apply for them – more information is here.

If you feel that you might need quite a lot of support before you would be ready for work then a Pre Employment programme could be right for you. Use the ‘Training Search’ facility on the home page to find local training organisations that can help you find the right programme for you.
