Ok, so I'm currently studying AS English Language, Sociology, and Government & Politics. I'm fairly certain that I want to do an apprenticeship rather than A2. I've applied for an apprenticeship in maintenance engineering. I have always had a bit of a phobia of working in an office, and I despise the classroom environment. Basically I want a blue collar job, however I've never really been a naturally very handy person and have definitely seemed to be more of an academic type up until this point. All my family and a few others I've spoken to don't think it's the right choice. I don't understand for the life of me why though, if I did A2 there is not a chance I would pass English Language, which would leave me with a decent grade in Sociology and if I'm lucky a mediocre grade in Politics. I find it very hard to believe that employers of a manual job are going to prefer 2 completely unrelated to the job A levels over an apprenticeship and some actual experience in a related career. If any can offer any advice it would be much appreciated.
Apprenticeship or A levels?
