If you send your application in late, we won't accept it!
At this stage of the process we're reviewing all the applications we
receive. Because we receive hundreds every year, if you make careless
spelling mistakes or don't answer the questions to the best of your
ability, it's likely this is as far as you will get!
If you make it through our shortlisting process, congratulations!
You should receive an invitation to one of the assessment days
being hosted on the dates shown. The day will include practical

In your first week of your apprenticeship you will be invited to a five
day apprentice induction. This will provide you with all the information
and tools you need to kick-start your apprenticeship.
You will attend a five day residential
programme. This programme is designed to improve
your communication and team-working skills in preparation for your
apprenticeship and is essential to your success!
At the end of your apprenticeship you will receive a Level 3 qualification in your
chosen area. This is an advanced qualification equivalent to an A‑Level.
At the end of your apprenticeship you will be required to attend an End Point Assessment to
determine if you've secured full-time employment. Remember – the time you've spent
with us so far has been working towards this point.
Many of our former apprentices have gone on to work in more senior roles within
the organisation (advancing into Officer and Team Leader positions).
