    Hi. I am an Open University student looking for a biology apprenticeship. The problem I have is that I do not have any prior qualifications or experience in this field, and when I look for apprenticeships, all the places I seem to come across ask for this to some degree. Can anyone help, please? Thank you very much in advance...

    I would have though the minimum would be Maths, English and a couple of science GCSEs? Its going to be a tough nut t crack without anything. Presumably when you do well in your OU exams then you can try again and see if they will consider you?

    Yeah maybe. Even work experience would do. Or voluntary work.

    They'll all have minimum entry requirements, work experience etc. will help, but it will depend on the level as to whether you're accepted. Plus don't forget, having that degree will make it more difficult to be accepted to apprenticeships.
