IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Please note that in the very near future the facility for candidates to search and apply for apprenticeship vacancies or traineeship opportunities through the Apprenticeship vacancies (Av) system will be turned off. All candidates will be required to hold an account on the Find an apprenticeship’ or Find a traineeship’ service housed on Gov.uk. Candidates can create an account via the following links: https://www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship or https://www.gov.uk/find-traineeship
This will apply to ALL candidates irrespective of whether or not they have an existing account on Av. Therefore, with immediate effect, if they have not already set up a new account can you encourage candidates to create an account on the new service and to use it in order to search and apply for vacancies. The Av system will reflect this change via messaging that will appear to inform candidates but it would be very helpful if you could begin getting this message out to your customers.
With the new services there is no requirement for partners or other stakeholders to create an account in order to search the system. Anyone can search and view full vacancy details without an account but only people who hold an account will be able to make applications.
