Struggling to find somewhere to learn more about these?

Been recently pointed in the direction of doing one instead of attending full university by a UK careers adviser.

I am 35 years old so it kinda makes more sense for me.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hi I can help answer any questions for finance related options. I'm a school leaver myself and a chartered accountant, I didn't do a degree apprenticeship however, I've been chartered for 5 years now and never looked back! Not going to uni was a great decision in hindsight.

That’s great. Well at the moment I have not seen my fiance for a year, she lives outside of Europe.

So I don’t want to start an apprenticeship until after a trip to see her, ideally.

So I think my first question is do they start any time of the year like a normal job or is it more like University, where you can only start them at set times a year, maybe once a year like a traditional university or maybe 2-3 different times of the year like the Open Uni..

Thanks

You would typically start late September or early October, since this is when the academic year starts.
However, some employers may set a start date before this to get you settled in before studies.

I’ve completed 4 apprenticeships. The earliest I started was July, and the latest, September. It’s up the the employer, but it likely won’t be later than early October.

Employers typically begin interviewing a few months before their planned start date. They usually begin accepting applications from as long as a year before the start date.
