  • First Stage: If you’re shortlisted for the Apprenticeship we’ll contact you to undertake a short pre-telephone screening interview.
  • Second Stage: If you’re successful from the pre-telephone screening interview we’ll invite you to undertake an online assessment(s).
  • Third Stage: If you’re successful further to the results of the online assessment, we will invite you to a virtual interview which will be via Microsoft Teams.

Applications for our Apprenticeship Programme open in June, with assessments throughout July and a September start date.
