Apprenticeships for adults - 4 helpful websites


people with notebooksApprenticeships are an exciting option for both apprentices and employers. Apprentices can be  employed at different levels, from school leavers and university graduates, to people who want to further their careers or change career direction completely.

The main benefit is the opportunity to ‘earn while you learn’ The quickest and easiest way to identify who is recruiting apprentices is to look at a job board. By simply typing ‘Adult Apprenticeships’ or ‘Apprentice’ into Google, you will be able to see which job boards, including Google’s own job search function, are advertising different apprenticeship schemes.

So, whether you are thinking about life after university or perhaps a change in career, here are 4 jobsites to help you identify apprenticeship opportunities:

  1. UK The GOV.UK website allows you to search for all levels of apprenticeships, from trainees, degree to adult apprenticeships. It is easy to navigate and you can search by employers to understand which organisations recruit apprentices within your local area.
  2. Find Apprenticeships Find Apprenticeships allows you to specify location, sector and working hours and will search thousands of recruiters and hiring organisations and list the vacancies available.
  3. UCAS The UCAS job board is for the Higher Apprenticeship route. A higher apprenticeship can take from one to five years to complete, and involves part-time study at a college, university, or training provider.
  4. Indeed is a more generalist job board that search all jobs and sectors and is not limited to just apprenticeships. To search for apprenticeship opportunities, just ensure you add the keyword terms to make your search more targeted. ‘Apprentice’ AND ‘Mechanical’.

Some of these job boards allow you to upload your CV so hiring managers and recruiters can find you too.

In addition to job searching for live opportunities, you can research and explore which companies offer apprenticeships. Apprenticeship Guide has a directory of organisations who advertise and recruit for these types of opportunities. By understanding which companies recruit all levels of apprenticeships, you can also make a proactive approach to explore for future opportunities.
