    So, as the title implies, I am a graduate and I've had a look at some apprenticeships. Luckily, I have relatively few commitments at the moment and can afford to live off an apprentices' pay. However, it seems that graduates aren't eligible for funding for apprenticeships- does anyone know what funding graduates do get? (i.e. do they still get paid) Also, has anyone done an apprenticeship as a graduate?

    Why not just get a full-time job?

    I think it would be very hard to be accepted as an apprentice because graduates are literally not eligible for funding, I think you may as well just look for a 'regular' job to be honest.

    Well I'm looking at that too. There are just trades that I'm interested in that would normally involve doing an apprenticeship, which if I can't do one means I essentially can't do them. Not a problem, I just want to know
