What Makes a Great Apprentice?

  1. 1. WHERE TO GO, WHAT TO DO Leaving school can feel like a relief but we know that it can be hard knowing what is expected of you now you have left school and are starting an Apprenticeship.
  2. 2. COMMITMENT Employers want to hire people who come across as committed not only to the business but also to their own personal development and learning. You need to show an employer that you really want to succeed on the Apprenticeship that they are offering.
  3. 3. COMMITMENT It may not be in your contract but showing that you care about the job more than just turning up and going home will show the employer that you want to work for them and you are working hard for your future. This will make you stand out from the crowd and hopefully make you an invaluable employee.
  4. 4. ENTHUSIASM We love to have people around us who build us up, bring new ideas and are willing to play their part and it is the same with employers. Employers love enthusiasm because it means that you are enjoying your job and putting the most you can into it.
