Your Apprenticeship interview at college

Congratulations on reaching the next stage in your apprenticeship application!

Your college interview is the first part of the selection process for the vacancy you have applied for through VMS. As New College Durham is the training provider for your apprenticeship, we firstly need to make sure you know all about the qualifications you will be studying with us and the commitment that is required. It’s also an opportunity for our tutors to get to know you better.

What will happen?

You will meet with one of our friendly tutors from the course you will be studying as part of your apprenticeship. We’ll let you know all about the subject area, and ask you about your motivations, interests and hopes for the future, to make sure that an apprenticeship is the right path for you. It’s also a good opportunity for you to ask any question, and to tell us why you want to do an apprenticeship.

What’s next?

Following your college interview we will let the apprenticeship employer know if we think you are suitable for an apprenticeship and can manage the demands of study. If you are shortlisted you will then be invited to an interview with the employer.
