It depends on your age really, as you may be able to apply for an apprenticeship. I think they will only start you as an apprentice up to 18 years old. If you're older, then I would post CV's to local companies, if they're not looking to take anyone on. You could offer to work voluntarily for one or two days per week - just for the experience (better that sitting around getting no experience) then if they like you and your work they may offer you a job once qualified.
