    Title.
    Looking at various potential apprenticeships but as i'm 25 i'm not sure i will ever be offered one, as correct me if i'm wrong but the business is given no funding to fund my education. In which case they will always choose the younger apprentice.Are there any 25+ people here currently doing one?

    They've just scrapped the age limits on funding so you'll be fine, just depends on your previous qualifications

    Maybe it's not due to come in until a certain date but it was announced not so long ago, maybe in the most recent budget.
