    You can start off by volunteering in a sector you are interested in? And if that company sees you can do the job to their standards then they may offer you a job?

    It's a starting point.

    Have a look on the government apprenticeship website, they have loads in lots of different subjects.

    I try so hard to study but I can't my brain just doesn't enjoy it so I can't do well I just don't like it so I'm looking for alternatives this government gives no choice to people that don't want to study for an example apprenticeship should have no requirements why you ask? Because we learn the job we know how to do the job I can see why maths and English is required but that should be for certain apprenticeships not all of them

    Hi there,

    Have you tried looking at the Find an Apprenticeship vacancy search site? Here they hold thousands of live apprenticeship vacanices, I would suggest searching for an Intermediate apprenticeship to start.

    Here's the link:
    https://www.findapprenticeship.servi...ticeshipsearch

    When searching through the vacancies they may mention GCSE's however some say 'desired but not required'

    Hope this helps

    Could look at Level 1 apprenticeships, all of them will include an element of studying, you're just going to have to suck it up I'm afraid.

    Apprenticeships aren't really the easy option, to avoid studying, it's just a different way of studying. For pretty much every job now you need some kind of qualification.
