How to apply

There are two ways that you can apply for an Apprenticeship through The Sheffield College - apply directly for a live vacancy or apply to the Apprenticeship Standard you'd like to do and then find an employer yourself. Keep reading for some pointers for both approaches!

ROUTE 1 – Apply for a specific vacancy

1. Click here to view our live Apprenticeship vacancies - you can filter by sector!

2. Once you've found a vacancy you like the look of you can apply by completing the application form on the job page

3. Our Apprentice Recruitment Team will contact you to invite you to a 1-2-1 session to go over your key skills, what makes you suitable for the role and to provide you with some interview preparation

4. Your application will then be sent to the employer by the recruitment team

6. The employer will then contact you to let you know if you have been successful

ROUTE 2 – Register your interest

Don’t worry if you can’t see a vacancy you’d like to apply for, we are constantly updating our vacancies and we get new ones every day! You can still apply using one of the following methods:

1. Click here to view all of the Apprenticeship courses we offer

2. Once you've found a standard that you like the look of, click the "Click to Apply" button
