Follow our step by step guide to apprenticeships below…
Once we receive your application form, we will be back in touch within 3 working days. Subject to you meeting the requirements of the apprenticeship and the employer, you will be shortlisted to the next stage where you will be invited in for Initial Assessment and Interview.
Initial Assessment: The initial assessment is a short online test which assesses your Maths, English and IT skills. The results of these tests determine which apprenticeships and which levels you are eligible for.
Interview: Providing you have met the benchmark level for an apprenticeship, you will then be interviewed by a member of the City Training team. These interviews are an opportunity for you to ask any question you have about apprenticeships. Our interviewers will ask you some questions about the course you wish to start and discuss the next steps with you.
Providing you meet the entry requirements, our recruitment team will put you forward for available vacancies. At Initial Assessment with the support of trained City Training Services staff, you will develop your CV, we encourage you to also begin sending this to prospective employers in the industry you have applied for.
If an employer likes the look of your CV, our recruitment team will arrange an interview for you. They will then help you prepare for it by offering tips, tricks and interview technique training.
Fingers crossed you get the job! But if not, we will be on hand to find you another employer.
