Say you did an internship at a FAANG company or an apprenticeship Google or the BBC. Can you easily walk into any job in that sector?

I'm not really sure I'd put Google and the BBC on the same level. Depends an awful lot on many other factors, such as what you did, what you're applying for, whether you are a suitable candidate for the job, etc.

Obviously an apprenticeship at a big, well known company tends to give brownie points on your CV. But I wouldn't go so far as to say it'll be easy and you'll just walk into any other job. There's a lot of factors, and it's better to be humble than assume you're amazing because you worked at some well known company. There's every chance you'd be competing against people better than you, and it's still necessary to try your best.

If anything, if you do an apprenticeship I'd assume you'd actually end up working for that company for a period of time. At which point when you choose to move jobs it's less about the apprenticeship and more about the actual work you did.

Not so simple.
Id say it would likely get you interviews.

Employers still want to know what you can contribute and what you were able to contribute in these other roles.
