One option for an individual considering an apprenticeship is to approach an employer they would like to train with, it has been noted.
Shagufta Mustafa, spokeswoman for the National Apprenticeship Service, said there is no reason why a person should not be able to apply for a position as a trainee with a firm in the same manner they would seek to obtain another position with the company.

This service offers a free online system where learners can search and apply for trainee schemes, while employers can manage and advertise vacancies, she stated.
