    I'm 19 and I've been at my apprenticeship for 5 months now and I'm not very happy. I think i rushed into a job without fully thinking about what i would be doing. I am interested in graphics but took one in exhibition design and its not what I want to do. I didnt take my gap year so i could do it and increasingly regret that. I spend 4 hours a day commuting, which is exhausting and costly, and often find myself thinking about it!

    I wouldn't leave for a few months so i could take a job over christmas with much higher pay! I then plan to travel and was wondering if i could get another apprenticeship later on even though I've quit this one?

    Yes as long as you haven't achieved a qualification you should be able to get another apprenticeship.
