Hi ,

I finish my apprenticeship at the end of August this year, on Friday I completed all of my coursework and it is now being internally/externally marked, I am 17 and I turn 18 in November. I don't want to stay at the company I am working for in this apprenticeship, I asked my apprentice assessor if I can leave when I my work is passed. She said no and that I have to stay until the end of the course. But I have completed all of the coursework and there is really nothing to do in this workplace as all I used to do what my coursework

Do you guys know if I can finish early in this situation, (She seemed to keep asking about my age when I was speaking to her. but I plan to go straight into a part time job for a little while so I can settle down and work out what I want to do)

Any advice or help ?

thanks

I believe the option of fast tracking is dependent on the employer, so it is their word. However, your age does come into it, as I believe you must stay in education or training until you are 18 so the closer you are to that when you finish, the better it is really. However, if you are adamant about leaving, maybe speak to someone a little higher up, but after your coursework has been marked in case there are any issues.

I agree.

Speak to someone who is higher up than your assessor, whether this is a manager or boss I can't say. Just as them what your possibilities are if your coursework is passed off early and see what they say, then suggest that you are thinking of being fastracked so you can finish the course early and see what they say.

If they say no, then you know it is not possible
