    I've been offered a business administration apprenticeship at a bakery, I'm not 100% sure I want to take it. I'd be on £110 a week a think. The advertisement said I should be able to progress onto level 3. I want to do an apprenticeship, just I don't think I'd want a career at the place its at after, so what could my options be after completion of level 3? I'm currently doing a levels but not enjoying them.
    Just need some help.
    Thanks

    Hi.

    If you're interested in this vacancy in terms of experience, then I believe you should accept the offer. Providing that you do not want to do A-levels/finish the A-levels.

    It depends what your career goal is; do you want to go to University or would you prefer to work as an Apprentice? Initially, you can still finish your A-levels off, and then work as an Apprentice; so the option of University is always there. However, if the employer takes you on from Level 2 to Level 3, (which is 9 - 12 months for Level 2, and 12-18 months for Level 3), then you can go to some Universities with the experience and qualifications.

    Typically, once the Apprenticeship has finished, they generally offer you the contract if you would like to work for them. Failing that, you will have two or three years working experience, and Level 2 and 3 NVQ in Business and Administrations, which should be enough for an average University, or any Level 4 qualifications (first year of University, and you can progress).
