      I have reworded your answer slightly to help with clarity.

      "Unfortunately, I do not have a formal qualification for this job but I do have experience working on construction sites. I feel this is invaluable as I am familiar with the health and safety protocols in this line of work. With my previous experience in other fields, I now carry with me a drive to complete an apprenticeship and gain the best education I possibly can in this field."

      I'd recommend starting with the positive. Although you don't have formal qualifications, you have a good experience that you should talk about first. I've written an example below to give you a start:

      "I have both practical experience working in and around construction sites, and informal experience handling residential electrical work. More importantly, for an apprentice position, I have a keen desire to learn and a commitment to making electrical work my career. I am a quick study and a good student and I will take full advantage of the education and experience you offer."
