Quick guides to apprenticeships
Any specific vacancy should inform you best. Even though you might not be ready to apply yet, it might be best to look them up now and gauge what they’re looking for.
You can also start working on how you can evidence the specific skill and traits they ask for. Specifically, for when you’re tuning your cv, writing an application form, or writing a cover letter.
I’d even look at enquiring for some work experience. Many big engineering firms have STEM outreach initiatives. My own company offers a 1 week live webinar insight into engineering research and development for young students. (Not software related)
