heya mate, you can do an access course at college for paramedicine studies.
Offers are usually in the region of 220-260 ucas points range.
This means either you can cram a-lvl's - you would have to do 2-3 to attain the range needed but would be far too much effort. So the access course would be far better.

Besides that, to increase your chances to get a place (if you have the time) as you are working, join groups like St Johns, British Red Cross etc, which highlights extracurricular effort & interest to become a paramedic.

Goodluck

PS- previously it was an apprentaship, but that's been scrapped, the only route in is education at a University supported by your Divisions Ambulance Service

Fact is if you want this you may have to do a bit of give an take. There is pretty much no way you will be able to do distance learning A levels in 2-3 subjects over 1 year and get good grades whilst working. Access courses are you best bet and there are a few that can be done distance learning however, many have these have past the application deadline for Sept 2011. I would also ask the unis you are thinking of applying to if they will accept distance learning as some don't. You can do OU modules to a point, I was told a 30 credit module was equivalent to an A level however again check with the uni as that was just from one.
