Reduce High Qualification Requirements for Apprenticeships

This petition had 39 supporters

My name is Lewis, I have Autism and I have a big Interest in Construction and Roadworks, I have always been interested in this side of things and would love to work in this Industry, unfortunately I don't have a lot of Qualifications and most companies who are recruiting for Apprentices are looking for Candidates who have National 5 or Higher Grades in more than one subject.

I feel this is too much, considering the whole point of an Apprenticeship is to learn and develop Skills on the job, like my self and many others are having trouble getting employment and accepted for Apprenticeships due to the fact they were unable to achieve these high Qualifications while at school.

I feel this is unfair to people who have a lot of knowledge and hold major enthusiasm for the career contents and responsibilities of the Apprenticeship Vacancy.

I hope you understand the reason why I am petitioning to major companies in the Construction or Utility sector and that you support my petition by signing.

I want to make a difference to the young people of Britain who are struggling to gain employment through Apprenticeship schemes due to the Qualifications Requirements that Companies are looking for from young people.


Thank you for your help and understanding!
