I currently am under an apprenticeship where I was told I was being kept on, now management has completely changed and they’re telling me they aren’t sure anymore. Apprenticeship ends in a months time and now I’m not sure where I legally stand? Do they tell me I’m not being kept on when it’s my finish date ? I don’t find this fair at all as how do they expect someone to find a new job so quickly! Please help

they're not legally obliged to keep you on past your contractual period and they're actually being nice by giving you a head's up. quite often when you get sacked they you just get a week or two's notice

Yes, they are perfectly well allowed to do this, business conditions change all the time. Start looking for a job asap, but keep in with them in case they do have a role. There's nothing legal about it, until you've signed a contract and started in the role, even then, it takes 2 years employment to get substantial rights.
