How can I start an apprenticeship?
Once you have decided what type of industry you would like to work, you can start looking to apply for an apprenticeship. This can be done in different ways, by either using the Government directory, the local council’s directory, directly through the college, job sites or contacting employers to see if they are offering apprenticeships.
Below are some good places to find apprenticeships:
The College – Bournemouth and Poole
Kingston Maurward College – Dorchester
Weymouth College – Weymouth
Brockenhurst College – Brockenhurst, Hampshire
Anyone in the UK over the age of 16 can apply for an apprenticeship, though they can have different entry criteria depending on the industry. Gov.org will have a full list of the apprenticeships available nationally, but most people apply for an apprenticeship through the colleges in their area.
