Register on www.apprenticeships.org.uk - you are not making any commitment, but it allows you to search.
Do a search around IT /Computing/Business and a post code. Be open minded about the description - it might not be called IT apprentice. DON'T apply cold. Call the apprentiship training provider for more details first.(see below)
There are quite a few (I am in Warwickshire) in this area.
This is the time of year they are advertised, ready for starting in the summer - if you are leaving school after Year 12, then now is the time to apply. Otherwise, look now, and keep an eye on it, so you are ready for next year. Braodly, Apprenticeship=GCSE level. Advanced Apprenticship=A level standard and Higher Apprenticeship = up to degree(and beyond sometimes!)
Top Tip - at the bottom of each listing it says 'delivered by....' and will have a college or training provider. Google them and have a look on their website- there may be more opportunities.
Get a good CV together - mention all the software you can use: an IT CV needs to be more technical than a usual one. Especially anyting other than MS Office - used Photoshop/Indesign/Serif/Video editting/Audacity/Web design/ Phython/PSP/HTML/databases ?? mention any you have used -they are not expecting you to be an expert, but don't lie - they might test you.
Clean up your online profile: Facebook set to private? Twitter polite; not full of offensive tweets?
Join Linked-in and follow some IT companies. Use Linked in ONLY for business, no 'chat'.
