So I applied for this degree apprenticeship programme that I am really interested in. I proof read and spellchecked my CV and cover letter several times. However, I just realised that I made an error. I wrote that I saw the job advertised on the 4th of August 2020 rather than 2021.

I am kicking myself and feel like an idiot. Is this a big mistake? Will it give off a bad impression?

I wouldn't stress over it. If the rest of your application is good , it will get overlooked. Good luck.

It obviously doesn’t show attention to detail but you are where you are.

All you can do is hope they overlook this. Good luck. If it doesn’t work out then at least you learnt something you can improve for the next one.
