The Apprentice Lifecycle

Find out about the steps involved in completing an apprenticeship.


The Pre-Training Review is not a test – it is simply a government requirement and must be completed before we can offer you a place. 

This allows us to understand why you would like to study your course and what your career goals are. We can also ensure that you enroll in the course that is the best fit for you.

After you submit your application, we will send you a link to complete the Pre-Training Review!
