hi so im 16 and im thinking about doing a apprenticeship mainly because my dad gave me 2 choices its either p16,which i really dont like because i didnt enjoy the school at all,or a apprenticeship,
The thing is if i do apprenticeship im not going to able to socialise much with people my own age and i might be jumping into the adult life too quick.im considering apprenticeship cuz the money will be a benefit because im brokebuh on the other hand apprenticeships are underpaid. if i go p16 im gonna be too stressed and also all my friends are going college.ive tried to talk m dad buh he doesnt listen. im confused ,however since im not 100 percent sure about my career path so apprenticeship might be a big commitment.so p16 was bad because our school has no good resources and students are just bad behaved plus all my friend are leaving,the school overall is trash. so honestly dont know what i CAN do especially since results day is coming and i have to make my choice



does anyone have any advice,whats the better option

To be honest, it sounds like you already know what you want to do. An apprenticeship would give you an income (albeit a relatively small one) and an environment where people conduct themselves differently (hopefully better) than school.

I opted for an apprenticeship and honestly it was one of the best things I ever did. Happy to discuss it further if you'd like
