I've been applying for apprenticeships since June/July and its know December and i still can't get an apprenticeship. the learning provider fast tracks my application because its successful they ask for my date of birth and CV and i still can't get an interview. i've contacted the learning provider but no valid reason in why my application was unsuccessful. is it because i'm 21 and apprenticeship are ONLY for 16-18?

Hey there,

Sorry to hear that - what is the learning provider? I'm not familiar with that term.

Have you been applying to companies directly too?

I believe it is because of your age. They generally only get funding between the ages of 16-19 for Apprenticeships. I was quite lucky, as I was only 18, not far from 19, when I got my Apprenticeship. It's such a shame that they aren't available to everyone.

I believe everyone has the right to learn new skills and trades. Especially in this climate.

A college which provides training. I've just been applying for apprenticeship on the apprenticeship website and the only one I've got is health and social care because you have to be over 18.

Not at the moment but hopefully this week I'll be e-mailing the companies that interior design as an apprenticeship for work experience

Good plan. I'm not going to lie, it's a tough market out there with lots of people looking for jobs. I really recommend applying to as many companies as you can, small and big. It takes a lot of work to get an apprenticeship or job but it's worth it in the end.

Hi

I don't know if Engineering Apprenticeships interest you at all, but Network Rail don't have an upper age limit on their scheme. www.facebook.com/ontrack

Sorry to hear this mate, but what I know is that citytraining only take on apprentices who are aged between 16 to 18, and anyone above that will have to be working along with an employer in order to cover the costs. This is due to the government reducing payments to education providers for students aged over 18. Therefore, some times they may not bother replying (lazy and rude) however, I recommend you join a college which does apprenticeships. They will accept you as long as you meet the entry requirements. I hope you all the best.

Hi, my son is 21 yrs old and is looking for an apprenticeship as a computer technician, he only has up to level 4 in computer technician. Can anyone guide or help in getting his feet through the door in this field as he is finding it hard to find a job with the level 4. Thank you
