    So i'm in my fourth week as working as a nursery apprentice and I earn about £122 a week.Seems low,especially fpr someone who works 10 hours(8am-6pm) tuesday-friday. Ideally I wanted to be a teaching assistant apprentice,but the application was taking more longer,and the opportunity for a nursery assistant came very fast so why not,I needed money desperately as well.Nonetheless when I started working as a nursery assistant,an teaching assistant agency(not the apprenticeship one)said they would love to work with me and I firmly accepted it because the pay rate is good especially for a 19 year old(£60-80 a day),plus it would be flexible for me as it has more holidays and finishes earlier which gives me time to enhance my ucas personal statement or in general cv.Plus at the end of the academic year i'm already balling with 10k,so I can pay off my first year of uni.So obviously now I need to focus on the consequences of me leaving my apprenticeship early?

    It is likely there won't be any consequences.

    You will need to check your employment contract though.

    Otherwise you just resign and work your notice period.
