Hello,

I am starting a Degree Apprenticeship in Business and Management next month and was wondering if anyone with previous experiences has any advice on how to approach it and time management etc.

Also, are any of you starting one this year too?

Thanks

Oh wow! I have actually looked into Morrisons degree apprenticeships as they look really good. Congratulations! Apparently the applications reopen in September but I don't have a specific date. Do you have any tips as you've gone through the full process?

Yeah they roughly open in September I think. Personally, I found it best to research into not necessarily the history of the company but mainly the companies values. The questions are highly focused around what you might do in certain situations and I would try to include personal qualities within these. I believe you apply online and do some form of questionnaire/multiple choice situation based questions, then if you pass that you will move onto a phone interview which is only 10 minutes long. If you pass that then you get to the assessment centre where you have a group task, a presentation and your individual interview. The whole process really isn't as bad as other apprenticeships in terms of applying and all of the people are really nice on the Assessment Centre day. Remain yourself and not too professional as they prefer you to be a bit more realistic in terms of how you come across during the assessment centre and not putting on a professional act.

I'm sure you will love it and hopefully you are successful if you apply

Hello
Congratulations on getting the job.
I'm a degree apprentice and I would say I would focus on having a really organised timetable/routine for work/study. For example, I have Mondays off as study leave and work in the office Tuesday - Friday. It means I need to have really strong discipline and focus on maximising that 20% of off-the-job study. I feel like if you manage that well and fix a routine fast, everything else should hopefully fall into place. Treat it like any new job: be inquisitive, do the grunt work you need to and help others, who will appreciate it, teach you new tips and tricks and return the favour.
And enjoy the rest of your summer whilst you have it! Gosh I miss the four months of summer I had before my apprenticeship.
Best of luck!

Great plan! I wish I had study days - would be so much easier to get the qualifications out the way without it interfering with work (but balancing it all makes it pretty interesting!!).

Totally agree about the summer too - had the longest summer I'd ever had before starting the apprenticeship. Though it's quite nice having the freedom to pick and choose when to use your holidays

All the best with you apprenticeship - how far through your scheme are you?
