Clearing and Apprenticeship

If you apply for apprenticeship during clearing what are chances of getting accepted? Or can you not do that?
Do you mean a Degree Apprenticeship where you work but also go to Uni (https://www.prospects.ac.uk/jobs-and-work-experience/apprenticeships/degree-apprenticeships)?

Or a traditional work based apprenticeship where you might also study at College (https://www.apprenticeships.gov.uk/influencers/what-is-an-apprenticeship)?

Apprenticeships are organised via employers - they have nothing to do with UCAS.

Degree apprenticeships are advertised by the employer so you do not apppy for 'a course', its a job vacancy with Uni based degree level training so you apply for a degree apprenticeship in the same way you apply for a normal job, directly to the employer offering it, not UCAS. Employers advertise degree apprenticeships throughout the year and there is no application cycle like there is with university. The vacancy will state when the application deadline is, and when the apprenticeship is due to start. UCAS has a page with the latest vacancies - https://careerfinder.ucas.com/jobs/degree/ - but you apply DIRECT to the EMPLOYER.

Hi but degree apprenticeships require a certain amount of UCAS points to be able to study the degree course at the uni. So can you still apply and potentially get accepted through clearing if you didn’t achieve the required grades to begin with?
