 *This is the level of the apprenticeship (for reference GCSEs are a Level 2 qualification)


When applying please remember to include ALL your qualifications and grades - including your predicted ones!  (On the Government website you will need to tick a box to show that they are your predicted grades).

 Make sure that you pop back to this webpage frequently so that you don't miss out on any apprenticeships!

Take a look at the Government apprenticeship website as well, as this is where the employers vacancies will appear, and ultimately where you will need to apply.


All apprenticeships will commence with an initial period of training at SETA's Apprenticeship Training Centre, at Millbrook just outside Southampton.

If you would like to apply for any of the positions (when they are available), make sure that you follow ALL the instructions on the Government website and submit your “online” application before the closing date. Please remember to include your GCSE predicted or achieved grades on your application form.
