•Find out more about the employer, the training provider and job description before applying•Identify yourself, your skills and interests clearly – be professional, but try to allow your personality to come out•Tailor your application to each vacancy – don’t just send the same CV and covering letter to each employer

Case study: Charlotte Adnams

With her GCSEs and A-Levels behind her, Charlotte hoped to study public relations (PR) at university but fee increases mean that she couldn’t afford it so she started looking for an Apprenticeship. She visited the Apprenticeship website and started using the Apprenticeship vacancies system, which she says she found very easy to navigate.  Charlotte found an Intermediate Apprenticeship, which she completed in April 2013, gaining an NVQ Level 2 in Business and Administration. Her employer is so pleased with her progress that they are now sponsoring her to complete a Higher Apprenticeship in Public Relations.

Employer case study:Gabriele

Gabriele, Channel 4Business administration assistant

Having an apprentice scheme is about recognising raw talent over qualifications or work experience. But ours is also about diversity. We’re proud of the range of voices our apprentices represent. Many of them even take part as key speakers in high-level brainstorms around programming and content for young audiences. They add huge value to what we do.

Employer case study:Miles

Miles, Bentley MotorsJunior engineer

Apprenticeships give us the flexibility to train individuals to meet the skills needs for the future. Once trained our apprentices become highly skilled, effective and valuable employees. We find that the apprentices have a refreshing outlook and they often bring new ideas to the company. They can be a real inspiration.

Employer case study:Sam

Sam, Jelson HomesBricklayer

Apprenticeships bring young people into our industry, many of them with huge potential. If they work hard enough, like Sam did on his Apprenticeship, we can build on their training so they become a vital part of our company. They get a future in construction and we get quality employees. That’s worth its weight in gold.
