I was just wondering that if i was to apply for an apprenticeship in the field of software development, engineering etc. Would i need to have previous background experience of coding and programming to be eligible for the apprenticeship?

Well, i would expect so - in order to carry on a conversation with the other staff. There are many books on various languages. I'm presently working my way through one on assembly programming in windoze - that walks you through writing simple programs using "DeBug" - which comes with Windoze. There are other books available for Visual Basic, Visual C++, other things. I used to do a LOT of programming in Fortran, but that was years ago. All of the "Visual" things basically automated the screen graphics design to a 'drag and drop' process. You could do that in regular Basic, but you had to 'hand code' all of the 'boxes' and 'display' things manually. I wrote a program like that once in Basic. I had a menu list with a 'highlight' bar, and you could click on your selections & they would be downloaded to an output file. This was all written with regular Basic. It would have been less work with Visual Basic, but that wasn't available then. Cheers & good luck.
