What our students have to say...

I can honestly say doing the apprenticeship preparation course helped me to secure my ESB apprenticeship. I did not know what to expect from the aptitude tests or the interview. I learned so much and left feeling confident about my aptitude tests and the interview. I used what I learned at the course and was successful. I cannot thank Career Services enough for helping me to succeed with my apprenticeship .

I am so happy that I used the Career Services preparation pack to help me in getting my ESB apprenticeship. Before I did the course I was unsure about how to complete the application form, CV and cover letter. It also helped me with the aptitude tests, It gave me great confidence and I found the course very helpful, easy to understand and would be very happy to recommend the course to anybody looking to prepare for an apprenticeship.
