    Hi everyone, I have been to connexions yesterday and was shown modern apprenticeships, advanced modern apprenticeships and professional modern apprenticeships.

    From what I can work out an advanced modern apprenticeship is the next step up (if you can, good enough etc.) from a standard modern apprenticeship.

    Anyways I had a look at the professional modern apprenticeships and they seemed more interesting, more like me, but it was just a list with a sentance on what each was and what category it fell under (e.g. job title- assistant hotel manager description- day-to day dealings of hotel caterory- hospitality & tourism) <- not really that useful.


    Does anyone know about the professional modern apprenticeships? Anybody on one/ done one, know what they are like, more info etc.

    ^ I'm thinking of either an assistant hotel manager (although the unsociable hours (assuming) is putting me off) or some sort of a surveryor, probably a quantity surveryor.

    Also do they expect you to gain a degree at the end of, anytime through it? I really do not want to go to uni at all.

    ps I've done my A-levels, predicted fairly good grades, so I have little problems academically about getting onto the professional modern apprenticeships.

Sending the form off later, they sound great. Its an alternitive to university, you get loads of goof qualifications, I think theres day releases, but you work aswell and no fees etc.

    Sounds like a real alternative to uni, whilst still being able to earn big $ one day. Do you know how much they pay, do they tell you that? I have another interview next thursday and I'm going to apply then. I'm thinking of doing a surveying professional apprenticeship, can't decide whether to do quantity or chartered.
