Apprenticeships interviews and assessments

Shortlisting and preparing for interview

Following application, candidates are invited to an initial assessment with the training provider if they meet the criteria. Maths and English ability is tested, level of working and any extra support required. IT may be included in the assessment if part of the apprenticeship.

Application forms and initial interview feedback will be sent to you by the training provider prior to interview. The provider will have checked the candidate’s eligibility for government funding for the training element of the apprenticeship and will talk to you about the levels of training.
