    Are you looking towards the apprenticeship route or is this more to bolster your university application?

    Focus on your grades since that's what universities are looking at for admissions. There are work experience programmes, such as YINI, but they are quite competitive so I wouldn't be concerned if you don't manage to find anything.

    Each company is going to have their own requirements in terms of grades and subjects. Lots of companies offer apprenticeships. You may be better off seeing what's in your local market first, although many of the bigger players offer them too, I'm not sure about travel/possible relocation for an apprenticeship.
