What do I need to be able to apply?

You’ll need you to have a pass at a level two qualification in Maths and English (typically GCSE level) and be able to demonstrate an interest in the role you are applying for.
You can’t apply for a scheme where you’ve previously achieved a similar level of qualification in that that subject/discipline (for example, you can’t apply for an engineering apprenticeship if you already have an engineering degree). We are currently unable to sponsor work visas so you will also need the right to work in the UK.
