To apply* for an apprenticeship programme, potential apprentices must first complete an initial assessment. Once the initial assessment has been reviewed an application form will be sent out.
Both the initial assessment and application form must be returned to us at least four weeks before the registration date to allow time to prepare the apprentice’s individual learning programme, agreement and commitment statement, which will need to be signed by the apprentice and employer and returned to the Apprenticeships team before starting the apprenticeship programme.
*The Apprenticeships team reserved the right to change the level applied for based on information provided in the initial assessment.
