Make sure you do your homework and look at the company's website, as well as what's involved in the apprenticeship. Think about why would be a good fit for the company and what you can bring to the table.
2. Read through your CV and cover letter
Jot down some notes about all your relevant skills and experience so you're ready to talk about them in the interview.
3. Practice, practice, practice
Ask a family member or friend to act as the interviewer and run through some practice questions. This will help you prepare for the real thing, and build your confidence.
4. Dress smart
Remember, first impressions always count! So make sure you wear something smart and appropriate on the day of your interview, turn up on the time, and give honest, clear answers to all their questions.
You should also back everything up with examples to demonstrate you have all the skills and abilities required to perform the role well.
5. Ask them questions too
It's fine to prepare a few questions for the company to ask at the end of the interview, so try to think of some appropriate ones that will allow you to find out more information.
These could be about the position itself, or the company and how it operates, or about future prospects once you have completed the apprenticeship.
How much do apprentices get paid?
The minimum that apprentices are entitled to depends on their age and length of time on a programme. Apprentices must be paid at least £4.15 per hour if they are under 19 or in their first year.
After the first year, if the apprentice is 19 or over, they will be entitled to the minimum wage for their age group.
