do a levels matter?

so i am doing a digital and technology solutions degree apprenticeship with a big company which requires BBC grades, say i get exactly that (worst case scenario) and start the degree apprenticeship. Say i want to go to another company once I finish, will they look down on me since I dont have good a levels or will my experience be more than enough? This is for software engineering btw.

i think this is a dumb question as you should regardless try and put as much effort into a levels as this is like your foundation. Also, i think its more about your experience and what you actually know like the skill. Hope this helps

Once you've got a job and built up your real-world skills and experience, those skills and experience are so much more valuable than your academic qualifications. (And in many cases, your academic qualifications may well be in subjects completely irrelevant to the work you're applying for anyway.)

It's been a very long time since I was involved in any kind of staff recruitment; but when I was reviewing applications what I was looking at was what skills people had, their previous experience, and the bit of the application where they were describing why they felt they'd be suitable for the role.
