Yes, typically either one day a week or block release. You’re paid standard rate for the day you attend college.

Ah ok thanks. I’ve done my A levels so already at L3. Would it make sense to then go back to college again?

The important thing is that you’re doing what you enjoy or progressing academically towards what you enjoy.

With A levels you could apply for 2-year level 3, 3-year level 4 higher, and 5-year level 6 degree (incorporated level 4) apprenticeships. But if it’s a higher level than 3 and you won’t enjoy the work, pick a lower level. You can always apply later after a level 3 to do a degree apprenticeships. I did a level 3 first and didn’t start a degree apprenticeship until I was 24. You’ve got plenty of time, but don’t underestimate how soul destroying it is waking up to a job you hate.
