Apprenticeships – Increasing Your Chances of Finding One

To increase your chances of finding an apprenticeship (including a school based apprenticeship) you should:

  • Do as much work experience as possible (sacrificing school holidays is a fantastic advertisement for your enthusiasm)
  • Checking for job advertisements
  • Keep your resume up to date
  • Have a letter of application handy
  • Have two good referees and written references (if possible)
  • Concentrate on maths at school (most trades want students with good maths skills)
  • Find out which other subjects you need to be good at for your trade.
  • Subscribe to our main blog for job notifications
  • Consider doing a VET subject in Year 11 & 12 in your chosen field of interest (if possible)
