    Hi! I just made an account, so I'm hoping I posted this in the right place...

    For quite a while, I have been worrying that I have picked the wrong GCSE options (Computer Science, Drama, Spanish, and Triple Science) as I don't think I would do well in a university situation- I've been looking around and I can't seem to find any apprenticeships for explicitly Computer Science.

    Could anyone please tell me if there's actually such a thing as a Computer Science apprenticeship, or if it's a subject I'd need to go to uni for in the future?

    Thank you!

    There are apprenticeships for things like web development but I don't think there is anything explicitly computer science (e.g. the theory etc.).
    As long as you pick the right A-levels it will be fine

    Computer science is a theoretical subject, and the whole concept of apprenticeships is to focus on the practical aspects. Hence why there really isn't any apprenticeships for CompSci. There are so like more practical aspects like Software Engineering. Look into Capgemini Software Engineering sponsored apprenticeship.

    Wow, thank you very much to the both of you!
