Give yourself the competitive edge and boost your career with an apprenticeship
During this year‚ National Apprenticeship Week (8th- 14th February), there has never been a better time to explore how apprenticeships can work for you. This year‚ theme is ‚ÄòBuild the Future,‚Äô in testimony to how apprenticeships build the skills and knowledge for individuals to thrive in their careers; creating a highly-skilled workforce of the future. Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills, Gillian Keegan says, Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to learn while you earn, opening up new and exciting career paths that can transform lives. It‚ been a tough year for everyone, but we want the theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2021 to be a springboard to look ahead to how apprenticeships can futureproof workforces and boost careers. Top tips from our Apprenticeships Team
- Make sure your CV is regularly updated and in chronological order ‚Äì starting with your most recent experience.
- If you are selected for interview, read through the job description before you attend, and try to come up with some situations that you have completed those tasks before. This is one of the most frequently asked questions by interviewers.
- Prepare your route to interview the day before and make sure that you arrive 10 minutes early. Arriving late sets you off on a really bad foot.
- Try to self-source your own employer. This cuts out any interview competition and lets the employer know how proactive and keen to work you are.
- Employers like to see passion from a potential apprentice for their chosen industry and the company they are applying to work for. Show this in your interview.
