Sorry if this is a bit long winded but here goes:
As it stands I'm currently doing an IT Apprenticeship (PROCOM Level 3). Started February 2015 and originally meant to end this month, however as I wanted to do level 3 the end date has moved to March 2017, but i'm only contracted until the end of October.
At the moment i'm thinking about discontinuing with it for a number of reasons.
Firstly i'm finding the work/coursework balance quite hard due to the demands of work and the content required on the coursework. To make things worse I wasn't properly inducted to college until about 8 weeks into the start of the apprenticeship and I didn't start getting assessed until the September of that year as they took time to replace the assessor that left when I started.
Secondly another colleage who joined midway though his apprenticeship (around May this year) from another employer, has managed to start and finish the same course within a year and he was with a different training provider and says it was easier.
Lastly I don't always feel adequate due to my lack of knowledge which I feel hinders me on certain occasions and I don't feel that i'll be wanted after completing (If I stay)
What are peoples thoughts? Shall I carry on or find something alternative?
