Apprenticeships are fantastic, but it doesn’t mean college isn’t great as well – they’re both fantastic, depending on what you choose to do with your life. But if you feel like you want to leave, it is possible to leave college for an apprenticeship.
An apprenticeship usually requires you to work four days a week and take one day off per week to finish College work/assignments/coursework, etc. If you do not have Level 2 Mathematics, English, and ICT, or a GCSE, you will study those three subjects alongside your NVQ and BTEC Qualification with what you are learning and working as. Apprenticeships may be available for several periods, from as little as 12 months (Level 2) to as many as three years (Level 4). (Levels 2 and 3).
Visit the National Apprenticeship Website to find vacancies. Business and management, IT Practitioner/Technician, Maintenance Technician, Teaching Assistants (not fully qualified to instruct on their own), various Engineering fields, Electrician, Mechanical work, all are possibilities.
Apprenticeships are wonderful! and the good news you can leave college for an apprenticeship.
