Apprenticeships - How do I apply?

 In order to become an apprentice you need a job. Don't worry - SETA can help with that! We speak to over 200 local companies - small, large and international - who regularly recruit and train apprentices in engineering.

In response to the needs of our employers, SETA have minimum requirements that all applicants are expected to meet.

You must have achieved - or be predicted to achieve - GCSE C grades or above for English language, maths and a science subject and have at least two other grade C GCSEs, or equivalent qualifications. Under the new grading structure for English and Maths, a minimum of a grade 4 is usually required. However, this would depend on the specific requirements of individual employer. 

Apprenticeship vacancies

Take a look at apprenticeships current vacancies section of our website to show you which apprenticeships SETA is recruiting for on behalf of employers.  The interactive map on that page will show you where the apprenticeship is located. SETA is conducting the recruitment process on behalf of these companies.

By clicking the link for each advert this will take you through to the national Find An Apprenticeship Website which will show the exact requirements for each role and details about the employer and the job, as remember each apprenticeship is an actual job with a company. You will need to follow the instructions on how to create an account and to apply for each apprenticeship.

Some companies do their own recruitment, but all apprenticeships will be advertised on the national Find An Apprenticeship Website, so there may be other opportunities that you would like to apply for. There are about 28,000 apprenticeships of all disciplines advertised annually through the government website - so there's a lot to choose from!

When do apprenticeship start?

Apprenticeships generally tend to start in September each year but this can vary in some companies. Many companies start the recruitment process in January for the following September so the earlier you get your Application Form to SETA, the better your chances of getting a job!  We do have start dates throughout the year, so always pop back to the website to see if there are any vacancies though.
