Has National Apprenticeships Week convinced you to find and apply for a manufacturing and engineering apprenticeship? EEF works with top UK employers to advertise and fill their apprenticeship vacancies, so we’ve got a pretty good idea what manufacturers are looking for in their next generation of talent.

Here are a few tools and tips we’ve uncovered that will help you find and secure the apprenticeship you want:

Apprenticeship matching quiz – Find out what kind of apprenticeship, from electrical to maintenance, is the best fit for you.

Guide to the apprentice application process – There’s so much more to applying for an apprenticeship than just sending in your CV. 

Apprenticeship vacancy database – Browse our database of top open positions at employers across the UK.

CV and interview checklist – Polish up your CV and interview skills with these tips.

Read up on the company – Here employers give advice on what they look for (hint: it’s all about enthusiasm for the role and the company’s work).

So what are you waiting for? Get a foot in the door at the company of your dreams. Who knows where your apprenticeship will take you.
