Do TSR offer any apprenticeships?

Or is this something you're considering?

I had a look at these and most of the links seem to be directed at males, how about females?

Hi all!

Come over and chat on my link as being a start-up Recruitment Agency looking for non-graduate students, who are innovative and looking for a better alternative, than sticking out in a course to get a degree that they might not get to even use properly in the proffessional world. Don't fear what you lack but what you can gain. Where I and my team are working to find the best solutions to getting you into work but not just any job. A proffessional career, that can allow you to express your true worth. So come along and start the convo! I look forward to hearing from yourself and getting you on the road to a real career!!!

Amieowen,

You can do apprenticeships in a staggering number of disciplines that offer varied jobs. There are too many too list however below are a few links that will direct you to a website to search apprenticeships:

1. The government's own apprenticeship search portal - https://www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship

2. GetMyFirstJob - https://www.getmyfirstjob.co.uk/

3. Don't forget to search for apprenticeships of the inidividual websites of employers, they list many vacancies that don't alwayss appear on job boards like Indeed, Total jobs, Reed, Monster etc.

Hi everyone!

I can see that you are looking into University alternative career options. I was in the same boat 2 years ago when deciding what to do after sixth form as I wanted to further my studies but didn’t want the huge amount of uni debt that came with it.

I came across QA apprenticeships through a friend, and knew it was the right option for me. An apprenticeship is a great way to get a job, experience and qualifications (up to a degree) all debt free.

After one year, I have graduated with my L3 digital marketing apprenticeship, have professional work experience working on a variety of projects with senior managers and now have a full-time job!

If you are interested, It would be worth looking into some of the apprenticeship programmesQA offer.

As an apprentice grad, I am happy to help answer any questions you may have about apprenticeships to help you make the right career choice so, drop us a message on our profile if you'd like to have a chat or reply to our message on this thread

What do u need to do to get a degree apprenticeship- apparently it's nearly impossible and you will need to be favourable in the eyes of the employer.

It is ultimately dependent on the employer itself but usually, in order to get a degree apprenticeship, you would need at least 2-3 A-Levels in order to apply for them. When I applied for my degree apprenticeship I only needed 80 UCAS Tariff points. Additionally, it isn't "Impossible" to get a degree apprenticeship, however, you need to prove to the employer that you have what it takes to do the degree apprenticeship in the first place and what you want to get out of it.

Hi
I would like to do a chemical engineering apprenticeship, but where is the best place to look? I have tried contacting employers but I get a generic reply stating to look at that section of their website. I want to actually have a conversation! Is anyone able to help me please?

Hi,
Have you tried searching on the .GOV.UK website, I'll leave the link below. The search page holds thousands of vacancies. By using key words, (e.g. Chemical engineering) your location and willingness to travel (e.g10-20miles) it will bring up live vacancies available within that area and relating to your key words
Good luck!

I'm on a software engineering apprenteship so they do exist. I guess it depends what STEM subject or role you're interested in.

Thinking of going into physics or engineering so it seems unlikely, thanks

Hi guys,

Anyone at the Career unlocked stage for the PWC school leaver scheme in assurance, if so what's it like and how is the numerical and abstract reasoning. I have already practiced the tests on the website-is it like that or harder?

Thanks and good luck for those applying
