Application process

The application process for our Foundation and Higher Apprenticeships is exactly the same. Here’s everything you need to know:

First up, there will be lots of opportunities for two-way communication. We want to make sure we're right for you, not just whether you're right for us. And if you have any questions along the way, there'll always be someone to help.

The application process has four stages:

  • You'll start by applying online
  • The next step is a 50-minute exercise designed to show us your strengths
  • Then it's on to a digital interview. Some questions will be multiple choice, while others will give you the opportunity to record a video of yourself
  • Finally there's an assessment centre, where you'll take part in a number of team building activities, assessments and a 1-2-1 interview


All offers will be subject to you successfully completing our screening process.
