apprenticeships can go onto degree level
is that why you can be 24 and start an apprenticeship but you can’t be 24 and study A levels?

The government funds full time education until 19. Most people doing Alevels will do them in this time. You can do Alevels later but might have to self fund and there are fewer places offering for those over 18.

You can do an apprenticeship from 16 onwards. There is no upper age limit. I’ve read about some people doing a degree apprenticeship to change careers in their 40s and beyond.
