    Hey, I am currently studying a level 3 btec engineering extended diploma for general engineering which is a two year course. i am becoming a lot more knowledgable about electrical engineering and I would rather go down this path than mechanical engineering. (General is mech and electrical) I have talked to a teacher who was really helpful in informing me the different routes to go down, one being an apprenticeship which can get you a degree which is paid for, you get practical experience and also get paid for it. I am considering doing a degree apprenticeship but I am not sure how i can find these sorts of apprenticeships. I live in manchester and would prefer to travel rather than relocating. An apprenticeship that is local would be ideal but I wouldn't mind if it is in the north west area. I would also like to know about the type of salary you get, how long the apprenticeship course would take and what type of things you would do in the apprenticeship. If anyone is knowledgable about this please let me know. Thanks!
