Schools Engagement & Open Evenings
CATCH have a schools engagement programme that includes visiting schools, colleges and UTCs to promote CATCH Apprenticeships. This includes assemblies, Careers fairs, industry talks and hands on STEM based activities. We also run a series of open evenings which allows you to visit our site and see where and how we deliver our apprenticeships.
You will be required to complete an online application form that asks some basic questions about why you are considering an apprenticeship. Please note that we have a minimum grade criteria of Grades 4-9 or A-C in GCSE Maths, English and Science.
Aptitude & Selection Assessment
The next step is to complete some aptitude and selection assessments which will grade your suitability for an engineering or operations based apprenticeship. The assessments will also help identify other skills such as problem solving and logical thinking.
We will then invite you to have an interview with a member of the CATCH team. This will be to discuss why you want to do an apprenticeship, which areas interest you the most and what knowledge of engineering and operations apprenticeships you have gained throughout the process so far.
Employers who have committed to recruit a CATCH Apprentice will attend a careers fair style event where all the candidates will be able to meet them and find out more about the opportunities available. You will then be able to register your interest with the employers to be considered for their vacancies.
Employer Interview & Selection
The final part of the process is an interview with the employer, normally at their site. If successful, the employer will offer you a position as an apprentice and you will begin your journey as a CATCH apprentice!
