    Thanks

    Hi Kamilla, Most companies will start applications around February and march time, after that they will hold assessments or aptitude tests normally around may June time and hopefully start work around about august or September, Good Luck!!

    Hi Kamilla,
    Are you looking at any particular apprenticeships, location and any specific companies?
    I used to work for an apprenticeship training provider, mainly working in digital marketing and IT. We used to start apprentices every month, but there was always a seasonal variation for the bigger employers (mainly focused around their business financial years).
    Let me know the type of apprenticeship you are looking for, the location and any companies and I will try and help further.

    You need to apply for apprenticeships as early as September 2016, follow the companies on social media (be careful, some may have dedicated apprenticeship accounts) and keep track of when applications open. They're very long processes, similar to university applications.

    What sort of apprenticeship do you want to do? I searched mine around late September, and started in February

    You would be best placed to start putting in applications ASAP anytime before the surge in applications after results days.
