I'm not talking a 'hands on' building/engineering apprenticeship, more like a business apprenticeship.

A disciplined one.

An apprenticeship is serious business. It's not like school or college where if you don't feel like it you can just not show up, or be late, slack off etc.

An apprenticeship is essentially a job. You have to hold yourself to a very high standard - both at work and at the training provider. You have to be able to keep up with both the academic and professional work. Legally it works like a job. You get holiday days, sick leave etc. You can't just decide you're not gonna come cause you're hung over or you slept in late.

It's not compulsory, but advisable to work your ass off in the sense of getting as much experience of a broad variety of independent projects as possible. The apprenticeship will end one day and you want to be able to get a job so you want to gain some skills and have something to show for it.

Depending on your predisposition you might find it difficult to stay on top of your coursework, exams, etc, whilst attending work pretty much full time. So you have to have your mind set on what you want to do.
