Is an Apprenticeship right for you?

Erin, an Administration Apprentice at Inspira and Karen, an Inspira Skills and Development Adviser came together to compile a list of Top Tips of things you should know, before deciding if an Apprenticeship is right for you or applying for an Apprenticeship.

Top Tips

  • The application process can sometimes feel daunting. - But Inspira can help support you with your CV or interview skills.
  • Choose your vocabulary carefully, doing your research is essential. - Research the company, then show when and how you’ve demonstrated those attributes in your lifetime. This shows initiative and a willingness towards the job.
  • When doing an application highlight the skills the company is asking for. - Use your time to tailor each application for the job you’re applying for and make sure to use relevant examples from anywhere in your life.
  • Once you get to the interview stage it's your time to shine! - Show off your personality and the characteristics that make you a desirable candidate.
  • Another benefit of researching the company ahead of time is you may be able to get an idea of some of the questions they might ask you. - This gives you the chance to get ahead and prepare some answers.
  • First impressions count. – You’re being interviewed from the moment you walk in the building so make sure your body language is calm, give eye contact and be the best version of yourself.
  • Be Resilient! - You might not get the first Apprenticeship you apply/ Interview for, but that doesn’t mean you stop trying.
