    Hi, I am currently studying a software apprenticeship and I'm really not liking it reasons being sat behind a desk all day, the work seems complicated and the occasional *****y comments. I have an interview coming up for another job like my last (technical) basically doing what I used to enjoy, the more hands on approach to IT, it sounds more like my type of thing out in the open more, less trapped etc. I was just wondering if I am allowed to quit my apprenticeship and start a new one, is there any charges involved etc or can I just do a straight swap? Will I just need to hand my notice in and inform my assessor?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the reply :-)

    I don't exactly have a contract that tells me so I'm a little unsure.

    I'd have thought it would be like any other job, you can quit at any time like an employee or is an apprenticeship different do you have to actually complete it?

    Thanks in advance if anybody can answer :-)

    You need to ask your employer, each job is different so no one here will know for sure the terms of your contract. Some will require you to pay a fee for leaving early and some will just let you go.

    I will have to have a look, thanks for the I appreciate it.

    I hope if there is a fee it won't be too expensive.
