  • HOW DO I KNOW IF THE APPRENTICESHIP IS RIGHT FOR ME?

    It’s often hard to know if you will enjoy or succeed in your apprenticeship before you commence.

  • WHAT DO I NEED TO APPLY?

    You will need a cover letter and a resume highlighting your interests in the chosen trade and the relevant skills you bring to your apprenticeship.

    cover letter is your opportunity to tell us:

    • a little bit about you,
    • why you want the apprenticeship, and
    • what makes you right for this role.

    Tell us about what interests you, what you do in the local community and why it will make you a great apprentice.

    Think of your resume as a catalogue of your skills and experience. We’d like to see your school and subjects listed along with your grades and any pre-vocational certificates you have completed, plus any full-time or part-time work.

    Make sure you include any work experience or volunteer work where you may have had the opportunity to be part of a team. And don’t forget to list any clubs or groups you are actively involved in.

  • CAN I APPLY FOR BOTH ROLES?

    Yes, you certainly can.

    To be considered for both roles you must apply for each position separately.
