I've decided to just give up on my dream of getting a degree and explore other opportunities (a job, apprenticeship, etc - things I've never considered).
At 20, am I too old to be thinking about an apprenticeship?
I have A Levels (BCC), but I definitely don't want to go back to university. What are my options?
Apprenticeships are open to everybody, although some places prefer taking on 16 - 18 year olds as they get more government funding for them.
You're not too old however I worked somewhere that offered an apprenticeship while you worked and I was not eligible for it because my A Levels were the same level so I would have had to pay myself- often that's a problem with college qualifications. There are plenty of jobs out there that can offer you specific training- if you work in an opticians for example you can train as a dispenser or contact lens optician without attending Uni- I also know people who have taken up similar training in banking.
My friend joined the police force as community support after A Level and is now training as a police officer....there's plenty out there!
