    Hello,

    I've been to uni for 2 years and had successfully completed my first year.

    Some time after that I secured an apprenticeship with QA as the learning provider.

    However, I've been told by QA that because I've completed my first year (i.e. passed my modules for first year) there may be an issue with the funding? I believe the apprenticeship that I would be embarking on is an 'Advanced' apprenticeship.

    Now I'm scared shitless about what is gonna happen with my employment... does anyone have any ideas around what the outcome could be and what I can do about it?

    Cheers.

    Depends when you drop out, if you drop out before completing year one, you don't gain any form of qualification. It also depends on the size of the company as the bigger companies don't always rely on the funding.
