    If I wanted, could I visit a local computer repair store and get an apprenticeship there as well as studying the one day a week in college? I'm not sure how they are applied for although I know you apply for the subject you want to do an apprenticeship in via UCAS Progress and select a college.

    Would that work?

    You can chose to apply for any apprenticeship you wish for however an employer does not have to accept you especially if you do not posses the advertised qualities. As a rule intermediate = no formal qualifications advanced = gcse passes higher = a level / btech passes.

    If you apply via the UCAS website your not actually applying for a job but a place on the colleges apprenticeship course (usually 1 day a week) and if you pass there assessment (usually some gcse english and maths computer test) they will look for an apprenticeship/employer for you. This can be a good option but if they fail to find you an apprenticeship they often just transfer you onto the equivalent full time course.

    You can also look for apprenticeship vacancies on your own. I would advise you checking http://www.apprenticeships.org.uk/ as well as googling '???? Apprenticeship in -my city- ' and checking reed and other job sites. Beware tho if the vacancy is handled by a college you usually just end up in a list of apprentices needing a job and even though you applied for a specific job the college may not offer you the chance to be interviewed for that job by the employer (however they will try find you one).
