I recently received this query from a pupil in Year 11:
“Hello, I am currently still at school. When will i be able to apply for an apprenticeship? Would this be after i have done my GCSE's? Thanks.”
I thought it would be useful to reproduce my reply here in my blog as I suspect that many young people will be wondering exactly the same thing!
From around Easter onwards you will see a gradual increase in the number of apprenticeships advertised for school and college leavers as opposed to vacancies for people currently job seeking. The latter kind will have an immediate start date whereas the ones you're interested in will state a start date at any time from July to September/October.
