    OKAY so basically. i'm 16. sitting my gcses in may. I've decided I wanna do an apprenticeship after school. but this is the problem. the apprenticeship I've applied to which is in a nursery has only one vacancy available which means if I do get accepted then i'll be the only one who is young apprentice. the apprenticeship that I;ve applied to is all based on work. I don't need to go college or anything. meaning no written assessments. just mainly analysing. which is why I love it but its made me realise ill probs have no friends. I wont make new ones as no-one will be there my age and the old ones will be busy to meet up. u may suggest doing something on the side ( such as join a club i'm interested in) but it will get tiring as it is 30 hours a week and im already thinking of joining this language cluib thing coz I wanna learn a certain language but even that its 16+ which means chances are that there will be elderly. basically im depressed as to thinking of the fact that i'll have no friends. like EVERY teenager needs one. ps: oh yeah also when i'm older I don't wanna work in a nursery. I wanna work with the youth such as a youth advisor but I kinda have to work my way up the ladder. starting with little kids first as me my self I am still in the youth years.

    1. You havent been offered it yet.
    2. You dont have to lose touch with existing friends.
    3. You do have time to do other activities in the evening to make friends.
    4. You could also see what youth qualifications there are.
    5. Consider doing some of the courses offered by princes trust.
