    Basically I'm currently doing a levels but aren't really enjoying it. But I had an interview for a business admin apprenticeship the other day and it was successful and have been offered the job, but I'm not sure whether to take it. I'd be on £110 a week and its either level 2 or 3. But my main worry is where can I go after completion of the course? Does it give me a good chance of employment or let me do any business related courses or even university?
    Thanks

    Hi man.

    I myself just finished an Apprenticeship, however, I did my A-levels first. I'd strongly suggest you do your A-levels first, or do some Level 3 qualification, as the Apprenticeship, if it's level 2, will not grant you access to a Higher Education Course. You will require Level 3 to get into University, as the first year is Level 4, so it makes sense.

    They may offer you Level 3 at the end, MAY. It is not guaranteed, so I'd go over it before making any rash decisions.

    In my advice, I would say finish your A-levels, then do the Apprenticeship, because you still can do it. Then you can decide ultimate and you can still always go to University afterwards.

    If you absolutely hate A-levels and don't want to study at all, then the choice is pretty clear. Maybe look at other Apprenticeships, like Engineering, or Electrical Technician work or something, as they are amazing jobs in terms of prospects, and they generally allow you to train up to Level 5 (Higher National Diploma, which is the first two years of your three year degree), and the job prospects are amazing.

    I'm due to finish my Business Admin Level 2 in January, and I'm off to University in October. I did my purely for work experience to help me after my degree, as working experience is vital.
