How competitive are degree apprenticeships?Watch
Quick guides to apprenticeships
The actual getting the degree spot is basically free if you can pass the company interview and make the grades as the company says here is our candidate here is the grades and I have never heard of someone getting rejected from the degree part although it's not impossible.
I've got interviews coming up with Morrisons for their degree apprenticeship. According to the internet, there's 85 vacancies in total, which, when compared to getting a place on a university course (depending on the course, obviously), is probably fewer, but not by a mile. I can't speak for whether it's different with engineering but given EDF are expanding (particularly with Hinkley Point C being constructed just a stone's throw from where I live!) I expect it'd be a similar size of intake. At the end of the day, you've just gotta do your research, prepare for whatever tasks and questions you'll be asked, show your enthusiasm and hope for the best!
Hi, did you have the telephone interview with Morrisons? If so how was it, is it going to be tough?
In my opinion it was easier than a typical telephone interview, since you had a whole minute to think about your reply and there wasn’t the pressure of knowing someone was listening to you there and then. The questions themselves were orientated around possible scenarios you might encounter as a manager and ask how you would react. There was also one that asked why you wanted to work for Morrisons. They were all fairly simple and it didn’t take too long either.
I've applied for the same apprenticeship with edf as you, feel like it will be quite competitive as it offers alot however they are expanding as a company so I can imagine there is afew places. Having done the SHL testing I'm less hopeful now😂
