It's probably the best time to be thinking about them, as the bigger companies tend to have long application processes.
There are degree apprenticeships, so you can get paid to do your degree (don't think jolly up at uni with an extra £20k in your back pocket, it'll be on a release from work basis)
If you get your A-levels first, generally you'll be able to do any level of apprenticeship. If you were to complete your degree, you'd struggle to find an apprenticeship to take you, because you'd be over qualified for funding for most.
Main benefit is being paid while you're still learning.
