if there was an apprenticeship opportunity in your home postcode

no matter what role would you take up that opportunity?

say you wanted to be a legal administrator but this is an administrator in a school?

I think their point still stands. You're gonna spend 3+ years studying deeply something you're not interested in. sounds like a depression speedrun imo. maybe do this as a very very last resort.

but i mean if you think you can handle it and theres really no other option, do it ig.

(the three years thing comes from my assumption that this is a degree apprenticeship)

nope advanced level apprenticeship.
If it was that or nothing whatsoever, I didn't hate the idea of it, and it wasn't too long, I would consider it.

i was in same position, different job. go for it. worst that can happen is you don't like it. if so just drop out and do something else.

Its not about travel costs, I can’t travel independently. There are times when I can’t read a map on my phone because the location is in a corner so I get lost, and I struggle on escalators.

can you complete the apprenticeship and then drop out and not take up full time employment/not progress up to a higher apprenticeship
