Apprenticeships are for everyone

If you have a disability or learning difficulties, you might be eligible for additional support such as Access to Work grants. Find out about what’s available and where to get advice on My World of Work.

Look out for the Disability Confident symbol on the job vacancies here on This means if you apply, identify yourself as disabled, and meet the minimum criteria, you should be offered an interview.
