I have been really stuck recently as before, i thought and have been pushed into university and college because it always seemed to be the only option i was shown, however i have been unsatisfied with the experience of sixth form as i do not feel as if i am learning anything or benefiting from the courses i am studying. i know that i would definitely be a lot happier and content if i was doing something practical because i learn from experience and trying things myself and practising it, i always have been that way. i have been offered an apprenticeship that i know i would love and be a lot happier doing but i am unsure how and if i would be aloud to change and do an apprenticeship rather than full time college.

    Hi April

    Yes, of course you can leave sixth form to start an apprenticeship. A levels are not compulsory, you know! Once you get to age 16 and have completed your GCSEs you can do what you like.

    Go for it!
