    Hi. I'm currently in my first year of six form doing my A-levels. After 2 months I've realised A-levels aren't really for me and would really like to do an apprenticeship. All my family and friends have said that it's too late for me to get a good apprenticeship and that i should just stay in six form. Is this true?

    Also, i'm looking for an apprenticeship in either IT Technician or some sort of engineering.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Have you researched companies that are offering apprenticeships you are interested in and got into contact with them? Some may have different start dates or accept you as a late apprentice.
Could you cope without Wifi?
