    1) your thinking of doing apprenticeship you don’t need to choose college. When you apply for a job if they feel like you need to have specific training they will take care of it and decide what college you can attend to get that degree.

    2)you should be looking at different colleges as they have open days. Recommend going to them as they can really help you get a feel of where you will be spending your time for the next two years. After visiting them, if you want to do it then just apply it’s easier. Different colleges have different deadlines so keep an eye out for them

    yes so if you have an apprenticeship you don't need to apply to college however you need to consider that you may not be given an apprenticeship job, applying to college gives you a back up. you have to do one or the other til you're 18

    Yeah you got it.
    But I would recommend you applying just in case you don’t get the job. Plus, as a guide counsellor I always recommend everyone to do their alevels as it opens more opportunities

    No. If you get an apprentice role, you WILL do some form of learning, either at a college, or at work.

    You don't get to decide that, that's dictated by the apprenticeship you apply for. They will decide what the most suitable course is.
