Apprenticeships - How to apply

Apprenticeships - How to Apply

Apprenticeships are a great way to get a qualification, real work experience and earn money at the same time.

We have some great opportunities with some of the best employers in the local area, and our expert recruitment team, Job Connect, is on hand to help you with your application and acing the interview process.

There are two way that you can apply for an Apprenticeship through The Sheffield College - apply directly for a live vacancy or apply to the framework/standard you'd like to do and then then find an employer yourself. Keep reading for some pointers for both approaches!

ROUTE 1 – Apply for a specific vacancy

1. Click here to view our live Apprenticeship vacancies - you can filter by sector and company!

2. Once you've found a vacancy you like the look of you can apply by completing the application form on the job page

3. Our Apprenticeship recruitment team, Job Connect, will contact you to invite you to a 1-2-1 session to go over your key skills, what makes you suitable for the role and to provide you with some interview preparation

4. Your application will then be sent to the employer by Job Connect

5. If shortlisted, you will be invited to an interview with the employer

6. The employer will then contact you to let you know if you have been successful

ROUTE 2 – If we currently have no live vacancies in your chosen area

Don’t worry if you can’t see a vacancy you’d like to apply for, we are constantly updating our vacancies and we get new ones every day! You can still apply using one of the following methods:

1. Click here to view all of the Apprenticeship courses we offer

2. Once you've found a framework or a standard that you like the look of, click the "Click to Apply" button

3. Once your application has been received Our Job Connect team will be in touch to arrange a chat with you about your skills and how to go about finding an employer

4. Job Connect will keep your details on file and contact you as soon as an Apprenticeship in your subject area becomes available

Please be aware that applying for a framework or standard does not guarantee that you will start an Apprenticeship within a few weeks - you will still need to find an employer to complete your Apprenticeship with!


If you know a company or employer who is looking for an Apprentice, let us know. We can take you and the employer through the process together.
