    I'm not going to university mainly because of the cost and the confusion in what i wanted to do. :confused:

    I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who is also in the same position, and is currently in year 13 and know what they are doing after they complete sixth form?

    Plus, does anyone know any good apprentiship scheme's which are about in london or essex?

    Thank you.

    I'm sorry, stupid?
    I didn't ask for your opinion on me?
    I don't see why you think I'm stupid, and no thanks with the 'Only way is Essex' job suggestion, I don't think it is my kind of thing.

    My boyfriends just finishing his apprenticeship at ford dunton (im hopign you know where that is being from essex and all) the pay is amazing, and goes up in september as he finishes, and seeing as your a girl, youd probably advance quicker, they always do in those places, the pay there is amazing though, but considering you have no idea what to do, i could be completely and utterly wasting my time....

    I too do not have a degree, I'm 23 years old and just looking at apprenticeships.

    Is a degree needed for some schemes? I am interested in PR and advertising.

    The majority of the apprenticeships out there do not require a degree. I have only come across the IBM scheme which requires a IT related degree. In order to gain an advanced apprenticeship you will be required to poses 4 GCSE's at grade A - C including english and maths. I am 19 now and what I hate about apprenticeship is that for some you have to be between 16 - 18. anyway good luck

    Just so you know I am in the same position as you. I do not plan to go to university after sixth form. I am currently attending interviews for childcare apprenticeships. I only recently realised that I really want to be a nursery nurse, but I may as well finish my a levels first- less than 2 weeks left until my last exam!
    Good luck!
