No, you're not trapped in that job forever. You can always seek out a further/higher education by doing qualifications privately or an Access to HE course. You can even do a second apprenticeship in a different industry, or just change job to a different industry by using the skills you have gained through your employment.

Hey

Even without sixth form education i think you'll be able to Access courses which you can use in place of A-Levels to get into university, or alternatively you can sit a-levels/BTECs privately if you're interested in studying that instead.

You should also be able to apprenticeships in what you're interested in or get a starter job somewhere and work your way up.

I'm in a slightly different scenario but I did an apprenticeship after finishing my A-Levels in 2017. I worked there ever since but when we started to work from home last march i realised that the only thing i liked about the job was the travel element. I decided to resign this august and now i'm applying to uni to do physics next year when i'm 23!

You are never tied down to one thing and there will always be other opportunities waiting for you
