Apprenticeship Assessment Preparation

Candidates that apply to apprenticeship programmes such as the ESB must be successful in the selection process which includes a series of selection tests in the form of aptitude tests and an interview. Every year we at Career Services successfully prepare hundreds of interested candidates just like you for the ESB assessments and interview as well as for other apprenticeship competitions including Irish Rail, Bus Éireann, eir, Aer Lingus, and many more.

Obviously, our primary objective is to help you attain your desired apprenticeship but equally we place
strong emphasis on our students’ self-development. Aside from the value of our preparation course for the apprenticeship competitions, our course has far reaching benefits and provides you with skills that can be applied to various job applications in the future.

Prepare for apprenticeship application forms, aptitude tests and interviews!
