How to Find and Apply for an Apprenticeship

Unlike colleges and sixth forms, apprenticeship vacancies are advertised all year round. However, peak times tend to be from May to September. 

The best way to find an apprenticeship is to register on relevant websites. These include ApprenticeKent and the GOV.UK Find an Apprenticeship website. You can search for vacancies within your area and interests. 

You can apply for an apprenticeship in the same way as you would apply for a job vacancy. They're extremely competitive and you should apply for multiple vacancies. Employers will post vacancies every day, so it may be worth setting up alerts on your registered accounts and regularly checking the websites. 

You can look at employers' websites directly, particularly for large employers, as they tend not to advertise vacancies through apprenticeship vacancy sites.
