    Hi guys,

    Thought I'd set up an apprenticeship applicant thread for 2018. It's a place for people to connect, share advice and support each other.
    Here are a couple questions to get the ball rolling.

    Where are you applying to?
    What kind of apprenticeship are you applying for?
    What made you decide to apply for an apprenticeship?

    I'd definitely say anyone looking for an apprenticeship should start looking around September time.

    Higher level apprenticeships (Degree/Higher/Some advanced) run parallel to the UCAS admissions so certainly need to be considered earlier than people expect.

    Probably your second year of college

    It depends on what kind of apprenticeship you are looking for. If you are looking for higher/degree apprenticeships then the ideal time is between September to February and if you are just applying for intermediate, advanced apprenticeships then there are vacancies all year round.
