that sounds quite understandable given the pandemic. There will be more competition after all. I suggest just keep at it and keep applying

I have found its a good idea to look at the list of apprenticeship standards before looking at specific employers and what they are offering. The standards are the approved outlines of all apprenticeships in the UK, think there are over 500. Have a google for the Institute of Apprenticeships to find the full list. This is good because then you can research for a specific apprenticeship name that you know exists like Marine Pilot. On the webpage for each standard there is also a list of employers who made the standard so you could check out their websites!

Hope this helps

is that your concern? You can always get loans and guess what? The amount you repay back depends on how much you earn. If you earn less than a particular amount you don;t to repay at all.

it's not just that, i don't work well with studying, memorising and exams i prefer actually doing things. and also I do know a few people who are in their 30s and are still in uni debt.

Yes mate don't listen and go to uni, what types of apprenticeships are you looking at? I applied for a few last year and got lucky. There are definitely fewer this year, the best way forward is to apply for as much as you can, widen you're criteria to give you options - even if you later decline.

I presume you are aware of the government website: https://www.findapprenticeship.servi...ticeshipsearch

I believe you will find lots of suitable options depending on where you desired location to work is.
