Find an apprenticeship for you

Dear parents and carers,

Please find below hyperlinks, to the government apprenticeship website, for all of the apprenticeships in the Medway and Maidstone area. When you click onto the link you will see all of the information for the apprenticeship such as: title of position, weekly wage, hours of work, how long the apprenticeship is for, start date, desired qualifications and a short summary of the employer. The apprenticeship advert will also tell you how to apply. You need to create an account to apply for any of the apprenticeships and this just uses an email address, name and date of birth. The email address you add needs to be one you can access regularly as employers will contact you using this email address from any applications made.
