Apprenticeships - How to apply

What makes the AMRC Training Centre unique is that we work directly with local companies to match you with the right job and employer.

Our recruitment team will support your apprenticeship journey from filling in your application through to helping you secure a job and starting your apprenticeship.

We are open now for applications for September 2020 and we have included some information to help you get started with your application.

If at any point you have any questions about your application, you can contact any member of our recruitment team or email

2020 GCSE and A-Level grading information

We are aware that schools and colleges have been disrupted by COVID-19 (also known as Novel Coronavirus). The UK Government has confirmed that, although GCSE and A-Level exams have been cancelled, they expect grades to be awarded at the usual time so that students can progress to higher education as planned.

We are now open for applications and at this stage you will be required to use your predicted grades throughout your application.

Student applications closing soon

We will be closing student applications on 19th June 2020. There is still time to apply and our recruitment team are on hand to answer all your questions.

How our application process works

The first step to applying is to fill in an application form

Remember the more information you can provide, the easier it is for us, and the employers we work with to try and find you the right role. 

Don't forget to do your research, you can find more information about the apprenticeships we offer here>

Once you have completed your form, we will contact you to let you know how you got on.

If successful, you will progress to an online assessment.

We require everyone that applies to complete an online assessment. The tests we carry out are relevant to the engineering sector and focus on several key skill areas:

  • English: assesses your understanding and use of English language.

  • Maths: measures your ability to complete maths-based calculation.

  • Spatial reasoning: measures your ability to comprehend and manipulate objects in three dimensions.

  • Mechanical understanding: measures your ability to understand how simple mechanical systems work.

  • Colour blind test: some of our pathways require full colour vision.  If the test confirms you do not have full colour vision we may require you to visit an optician and you may have to consider alternative pathways.

If you are successful, you will be invited to an online interview.

Once you have successfully completed your application form and online assessment, a member of our team will invite you to an online interview.

The interview will be with a member of the recruitment team and a member of our teaching staff. We will ask you a series of questions relating to your goal of becoming an engineer apprentice.

We would recommend you taking a look at this guide to online interviews to help you prepare.

If you think you will have difficulties accessing an online interview, please contact our recruitment team and they will be able to assist with any questions you have.

If you are successful in your interview you can progress to the final stage, finding an employer. You must be placed with a company before you can start your apprenticeship at the AMRC Training Centre.

Don’t worry, we will help you. What makes us a good choice is our dedicated recruitment team who work directly with local companies on your behalf. We already have jobs lined up for our applicants.

Please note, if you already have a job with a company that would like to support you in an apprenticeship, this is OK too. Just let our recruitment team know and we can help with the rest.
