    Been around two month and still haven’t found an apprenticeship..
    I don’t have enough experience to get a proper job so I thought doing an apprenticeship would be a good way to start but it’s been quite hard to find one that’s suitable
    Someone suggested going on JSA and finding a job through that route? What’s that like? Do you think I should that
    Any advice is appreciated thanks

    Start with what is it you want to do?

    What are your long term goals? An apprenticeship could be a good way in to achieve these.

    Hi,

    It took me around 5 months to find the right apprenticeship for me, I narrowed down what I wanted to do as a career and where I wanted to be in a few years time. My answer was still, 'I don't know', so I looked for an apprenticeship in companies with big career prospects and lots of support. I continued to search throughout the 5 months and finally found one I was interested in and I knew would offer me the opportunity to progress after my apprenticeship.

    Don't give up, you don't neccessarily need experience, search for something you think you may be interested in and go from there.

    Try using the GOV.UK vacancy search site:

    The Student Rooms Apprenticeship Zone has lots of useful advice.

    An apprenticeship is out there for you! Hope this helps!
