Looking for work or an apprenticeship takes time and accessing the right resources can make your search more effective. Here are some sites that advertise job opportunities and also some resources to help you look for vacancies in areas of work you are interested in.
Apprenticeships are available for adults; there is no upper age limit (16 years old and over). They are available across a number of industries and organisations ranging from engineering, business, law, nursing, childcare to retail, and much more.
An apprenticeship could be for you if:
- You are practical and hands-on
- Would like to earn and learn at the same time
- Want to get job-related skills and work alongside experienced staff
- Want to gain a certificate to evidence your skills and abilities. Qualifications start from level 2 (GCSE equivalent) to level 7 (Degree equivalent)
- You are thinking about a career change or a promotion
- You want to use your current skills and abilities in a new field.
