    So my sixth form often has opportunities for students to apply for apprenticeships, however, I'm not too sure if taking an apprenticeships will cancel out my A level study/distract my study time.
    Excluding work experience, does doing apprenticeships worth while and do they affect me with my A levels?

    It is unlikely that you will be able to study A-Levels and undertake an apprenticeship side by side.

    Apprenticeships are jobs, most of which are full time. If you're happy to continue your A-levels without classroom support, it would be possible. Kind of defeats the idea of the apprenticeship though, which is to get you into full time work at the end of it.
