Write An Apprenticeship Thank You Letter. Is your apprenticeship over? If you’re struggling to move on and find other opportunities, maintain contact with your former provider and employer. It’s possible that they can connect you with other opportunities or may take an interest in your progress if you reach out to say thanks.
Tell the organisers you enjoyed the Apprenticeship
It is important for apprentices to end their contracts on a high note with their employer-trainer for the following reasons:
- Building a positive reputation: A positive experience and a good reference from a former employer-trainer can be valuable for future job opportunities.
- Networking: Ending the contract on a good note can help the apprentice maintain a professional relationship with the employer-trainer, which could lead to future job recommendations or connections.
- Career Development: The skills and experience gained during the apprenticeship will help the apprentice further their career. A positive experience during the apprenticeship can improve their confidence and motivation to continue learning and growing professionally.
Therefore, ending the contract on a high note can benefit your future career prospects and personal growth. Sending them a letter of thanks is a sure way to end on a high note!
The organisers could be a human resources person at the company, a training provider, a college or an employer. Sometimes there are two or three parties listed on your contract, make contact with those parties. Sending organisers a thank you letter shows your appreciation and creates an opportunity for you to politely request information about taking your experience further.
Thank the Employer and the Training Provider
If you’ve just completed an apprenticeship let your professionalism shine through. Be living proof that their efforts and investment in you worked. Don’t let them know it’s been difficult to find work or more study options, tell them you would like to continue developing with them either by participating in more programmes or in working for them.
Training providers and employers are often open to upskilling youth to work with other youth. Perhaps you could become involved in training other youths just starting out. Be bold, if you made a great impression when you were on the programme with them, they will be open to a chat just because they like you. Most education professionals are motivated by energised learners, and take advantage of this emotional value. Employers and training providers both like to quote stats and tell stories of who they helped, so fit their purposes so that you can reach your goals.

Thanking the Employer: the Apprenticeship thank you letter
I completed the X apprenticeship programme in 2022 and wanted to share what the experience has meant to me and how it’s been life-changing.
As an employee at your premises, I’ve learnt/seen how / been inspired by / been challenged to…
My experiences have led to the realisation of two goals:
- Working for your firm and being a real representation of the success of your programmes
- Either participating in further development programmes with you or in being trained to work with youth you place on those programmes.
Tips for the apprenticeship thank you letter
- write about any one aspect or briefly explain a few different points about the experience.
- If you’re writing about different things – try making one of them funny. For example Thanks to you l probably learnt the most valuable career lesson of all, that arriving late on Monday means no muffins at the meeting!
- Keep it brief, each word counts, and don’t waffle. For professional reasons you want to impress them with a carefully executed letter that makes them want more of you.
- Link your learning to the professional environment, showing how you’re ready to get started on your career path
- if you know they offer the same qualification at a higher level, show your interest in being placed on the next level-up programme.
