1) Check vacancies
Before using Apply 2, give the training provider a quick call to make sure they still have vacancies for the training programme you’re interested in. Even if the training programme is listed with vacancies in our search tool, it’s still worth double checking.
2) Is it the right programme for you?
Don’t rush into adding the first training programme that looks appealing – research what it offers and whether it meets your expectations. We’ve got lots of advice on what you should consider when choosing a training programme.
Where possible, try to attend an open day to get a better feel for the training provider before accepting a place. You’ll get to see the provider in action, learn more about the area, and will have a great opportunity to meet the tutors and ask questions about the programme.
You’ll need to attend an interview before you’re offered a place. Keep this in mind when applying as you may be asked to attend an interview within 40 days of adding a choice. If you’re offered an interview, congratulations! Check out our top tips on how to prepare before you attend.
