What is the application?

The process of applying for an apprenticeship program. Apprenticeship applications typically require information about the applicant's education, experience, and skills. Apprenticeships are investments on behalf of various organizations. As such, the application process may require an interview, a written assessment, and a practical assessment before an apprentice is accepted into the program. This process will vary from program to program.

Why do you need to understand the application process?

Apprenticeship programs have different criteria for who they select. Some are more competitive than others, and there may even be a waiting list to join. Additionally, there may be employment history, background information, or demographics that make you a more attractive candidate for the program. Knowing what the apprenticeship program is looking for can help you craft an application that will give you the best chances of success.
