How to secure an Apprenticeship
If you’re over 16, living in Wales and not in full time education you can apply for an Apprenticeship. First, you’ll need to find an employer. Get some tips with our step by step guide below.
Find an employer - Careers Wales publishes Apprenticeship vacancies online via the Apprenticeship Matching Service where you can search vacancies across Wales. Coleg Sirgar works with many employers each year to offer Apprenticeships.
Visit www.careerswales.com for the latest vacancies. Apprenticeship vacancies are sometimes advertised in the job sections of newspapers or you could also approach an employer directly. If you’re already employed, then we can offer advice and guidance to both you and your employer about the process of arranging an apprenticeship programme for you.
Get in touch with us - Contact our Apprenticeships team to discuss if you are eligible for an Apprenticeship programme. Call 01554 748000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to apply for an Apprenticeship run at our College sites.
You will be required to undertake a literacy, numeracy and digital literacy initial assessment and an interview ahead of step 3.
The agreement - You, your employer and the College will agree an apprenticeship programme of learning.
Sign up and enrol at Coleg Sir Gâr - Complete the process by enrolling onto your apprenticeship training programme and you’re all set.
Anyone who is over 16, living in Wales and not in full-time education can apply for an Apprenticeship. You will need to gain employment in the sector you wish to work in before applying to College for your training.
You will also need to undertake an initial assessment in numeracy, literacy and digital literacy. If you’re already employed, then we can work with you and your employer to arrange an apprenticeship programme suitable for you.
If you are between the age of 16 and 18 and unsure of the vocational area you are interested in, a Traineeship Programme may be better suited to you.
A Traineeship will give you the support, skills and qualifications you need to progress into employment, an Apprenticeship or to go into learning at a higher level.
Whilst on programme, you will gain work experience in the occupational area of your choice and receive a training allowance. You will be assigned a Training Adviser/Assessor who will provide you with high levels of support throughout your Traineeship Programme.
If the Traineeship programme goes well, you could progress onto a Traineeship Level 1 Programme and work towards a Vocational qualification at Level 1.
