Should I drop out of sixth form? Watch

University Navigation

    • Thread Starter

    I'm currently at sixth form and long story short, I hate it. I'm 16 and I'm a month in to sixth form and I don't think it's what I want to do, I don't want to go to uni so doing a levels for the most part would be pointless. I want to start an apprenticeship. I have 4 GCSES and I'm currently repeating my maths in January. How do I go about starting an apprenticeship (in IT/Computing)? And could I do an apprenticeship while repeating my maths at college? I'm in NI

    As you were told literally yesterday you can retake GCSE Maths while doing an apprenticeship.
    As for finding an apprenticeship look at jobs sites as well as contacting local colleges.
