There are a few ways you can find an apprenticeship.
You can apply directly to the employer if they’re advertising an apprenticeship position, or you apply using the government apprenticeship search.
If you already have a job, you can encourage your employer to take you on as an apprentice.
Use the government apprenticeship search to find apprenticeships near you. You can filter by job title, location and apprenticeship level.
Each advert includes:
- what you will be doing
- details of your employer and training provider
- your salary
- the length of your apprenticeship
- your start date
To help you manage any applications you submit, you can create an account. You’ll be notified of new apprenticeships and be able to track your applications.
If you’re interested in health and social care apprenticeships, you can also try searching NHS Jobs.
It’s important to note that not all apprenticeships are made available on job listing sites. If you’re interested in working with a particular company, you may want to contact them directly.

Applying for an apprenticeship
As an apprenticeship is a paid job offering hands-on training, the application process is often the same as it would be for any other type of employment.
Employers may ask for your CV, a cover letter or supporting statement, or request that you complete an application form. They will ask you for specific experience or previous qualifications so it’s important that you refer back to the advert thoroughly before applying.
