    How quickly did you get an apprenticeship? Ive been applying for over 4 months, im 18 so its not a funding issue. Im signed up with about 5 different companies, who ignore my emails half the time. They say on the phone "we'll let you know when any vacancies come through" then i see them advertising apprenticeships and they've literally said nothing to me. If they do put me forward i never hear anything back, or they'll be an issue like "this company have withdrawn". In 5 months ive had 1 interview with an actual company, which i didn't get.
    Should i even bother anymore?

    What are you trying to get an apprenticeship in?

    Bigger companies have better application processes, and smaller companies may not "like" the qualifications you have (over or under qualified)
Should MenACWY vaccination be compulsory at uni?
