There are not any set entry requirements to apply for an apprenticeship they’re open to anyone over the age of 16 as long as they are living in England and not currently in full-time education. If you have a degree you can still do an apprenticeship but you’re not eligible for funding so your employer will have to pay your training costs.
The exact entry requirements for apprenticeships will vary based on the employer; however, not everything rides on your academic achievements alone. Employers will value your enthusiasm and desire to learn, so practical skills and interest in your chosen area are very important.
In order to apply, you should be:
- Prepared for further study;
- Happy to work both individually and as part of a team;
- Able to use your own initiative;
- Able to show you’ve researched the area of work you want to do, and that you’re the right person for the job.
Equality and diversity
Apprenticeship programmes are inclusive and must comply with the principles of equality and diversity. They must show that they take an active approach to identifying and removing barriers to entry and progression. Apprenticeships must ensure equality of access for those with a learning difficulty. If there are any legal restrictions that limit entry to an Apprenticeship these must be stated.
