Totton College: Linking apprentices with top employers  

Embarking on an apprenticeship journey is an exciting step towards your future career. Finding the right employer is an important part of this process. Whether you’re just starting out or looking to shift your career path, here’s a guide to help you navigate the world of apprenticeships and connect with the ideal employer. 

Looking for an apprenticeship? You don’t need to have a specific employer in mind. We have strong links with local businesses and a bank of employers offering positions. Browse our current vacancies and apply directly via our website.  

Want more options? The Government’s ‘Find an Apprenticeship’ service is a good place to find additional opportunities. The platform allows you to: 

  • Search for apprenticeships based on your location, interests, and level. 
  • Apply online directly through the Find an apprenticeship portal. 
  • Access a wide range of listings across different sectors. 

Already familiar with a company from previous work or volunteering? Let them know you’re interested in an apprenticeship. If they want to go forward, pass their contact details to our Apprenticeships Team, who will discuss the opportunity directly with them.  

Ace your application – Prepare!  

Submitting a successful application isn’t just about meeting the employer’s criteria; it’s also about making a lasting impression. Here are some tips to help you stand out: 

  • Prepare for interviews: Research common interview questions and familiarise yourself with the language and terminology relevant to your desired field. 
  • Self-reflect: Identify areas for improvement. This demonstrates self-awareness and a willingness to grow. 
  • Honesty is the best policy: Always be truthful about your skills, experiences, and aspirations.
