    Currently I'm in my first year of Sixth Form. I've only been in it for like 2 to 3 months now but I really don't like it. I have a lot of issues to deal with at home and the amount of work that I have to deal with just adds onto the stress.

    My friend mentioned Apprenticeships once and ever since I've been considering it. I don't really know what I want to do in Life, but I'd probably want to do something along the lines of health. Getting paid isn't so much the reason why I want to get into an Apprenticeship. It's more about gaining the experience in work as well as not having to stress as much about my job later on in life.

    I'm really leaning towards it but I really want someone's opinion beforehand.

    I dropped out of sixform to do an apprenticeship
    It has its good and bad qualities
    The good are I can earn money however for me the bad outweigh the good. The bad are there’s nobody my age and I’m not enjoying it
    Although I could just find another one if u leave sixform you can’t go backs so have a think apply for some there’s no harm in it
