Experience


If you’ve not got much experience under your belt, we’ll make sure when you start your Apprenticeship you’ll be fully prepared to hit the ground running. You may be placed on one of our regularly running Fast Track to an Apprenticeship programmes, which last up to 12 weeks (or as long as you need to feel that you can confidently start an Apprenticeship). These courses will develop your workplace awareness and general skills; while giving you the opportunity to receive training in more industry specific courses, depending on your career goals.

Applying for Apprentice jobs in St Helens


If you’re ready to apply, here’s some top tips on how to ensure your application is the top of the pile for our amazing local businesses.

Do your research


Make sure you do a bit of research on the company before you apply. Is the commute viable? Is company culture a good fit? You can get answers to a lot of your questions with a look over the company website or social media feeds, another good resource is Glassdoor. This will also help you with tailoring your applications…

Tailor every application


Make sure you read the job description and person specification carefully, there will be key words and phrases your potential employer is looking for and you can make sure your CV and cover letter match what they are looking for, also showing a good understanding of a role and the company will look great on your application.

Check and check again!


It’s always a good idea to get someone else to proofread your application so you can be 100% sure there are no typos or spelling errors which could harm your chances.

If you need a bit of help getting your CV in order, or you’re not too confident at interviews our Careers Coaches can also help with this during your training.
