Quick guides to apprenticeships
Right, so I would like to understand more about apprenticeships. I would like a career in engineering, which I am working hard for, my grades are looking pretty good, 8 in maths, 8 in product design and 7 in physics. Hopefully ill still get those up on the real exams. I was wondering whether I should get an apprenticeship, if so, after secondary school or after college? Would I be able to get a well-paid job in the future just as I would with a degree in engineering? People say it's really good because you'll get the work experience and knowledge, but there surely must be disadvantages, otherwise, why would people go into uni and have a debt of almost 30K when you can get the same stuff and even get paid PLUS the years of work experience? It just sounds too good, so I am worried there might be consequences.
sure, you may have work experience if you don;t go to uni but your chances of progression will be limited. Also, some higher level apprenticeships may still require part time higher education anyway.
