    I am currently doing a Level 3 apprenticeship in BTEC ICT Systems and Principles, and i have previously done a 2 year college course in Level 3 Software Development.

    My apprenticeship is coming to an end and there are no signs of a job at the end. I have asked and they don't seem to tell me much. So i have assumed that there isn't a job at the end.

    I am confused on what i can do next and what i want to do next. I have had a look into uni but i feel it might be a bit too late for that, and i dont think my grades meet up to the entry requirements. My grades are:

    Level 3 BTEC Diploma in Software Development - PPP
    City & Guilds Level 3 qualifications in IT Systems & Principles - Predicted Grade Merit
    CIW Site Associate

    I think i might be able to get into a university like the University of Wolverhampton, but still not sure if that is a good route for me to go down for my position, or if it is too late to apply.

    I have applied for a few degree level apprenticeships, but heard nothing back from them yet. I am confused on what jobs i will be able to apply for with my experience, and just looking for a bit of advice of what i can do.
