RPA: Raising the Participation Age:

Did you know that you are now required to continue in education or training until your 18th birthday, or until you have gained a level 3 qualification (whichever comes first)?


Jobs search/vacancies:

Information on vacancies can be found by searching on different job search websites and also by contacting employers directly with some employers preferring young people to call in to speak to the Manager  and they can advertise opportunities in their  shop windows.

A large number of employers also advertise vacancies via their company websites.

To help you with your job search there is a selection of different websites in the more info and links section.




How to apply for an Apprenticeship

There are a number of ways that you can search and apply for Apprenticeships but the main source of Apprenticeship vacancies is the

National Apprenticeship website

If it is the first time that you have used the website you will be required to create an account and this will allow you to search the full range of Apprenticeships that are available and apply for any that you are interested in.

Having completed my NVQ Level 3 in Business Administration as an apprentice, I am now Supervising 4 staff and manage the Finance in our team. I believe the apprenticeship programme helped me get where I am today and has been invaluable to me!
