Individuals thinking of applying for an apprenticeship may decide to complete their applications sooner rather than later after one expert warned gaining a place on one of the programmes can be competitive.
Craig Abrahart, operating director at notgoingtouni.co.uk, said the key to helping people secure a spot on a work training scheme is to apply well in advance of the deadline so Britons can be interviewed before they have complete their exams.
He noted that his organisation deals with a large number of young individuals towards the end of the year who have yet to decide on their future, by which point many of the positions available to them have been taken up.
According to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, skills minster John Hayes recently met apprentices at the launch of IBM's first work training scheme.
The programme is aimed at young people and will take students who do not wish to attend university and have 8 GCSEs plus two A-levels.All articles
