    I have been planning on doing an apprenticeship for the last couple of years and believed that it was the best way to learn on the job and get paid at the same time. Since starting a summer job on the 27th of June, where i work 8:30 to 5, I have felt almost isolated and separated from my friends who are doing college courses. My summer job lasts until September, but im worried that an apprenticeship is going to be very similar in the sense that it is lonely and around older people who are not my age. My main interests are Business Studies meaning this would probably be a first choice if i did go college, my grades should also be good with 4A*'s, 3A's and 4B's in my mocks with my actual grades being released in August.

    Any advice would be appreciated, i have also looked at part time apprenticeships alongside 2 days at college which may allow me to get an equal balance

    Thanks
