After A Levels, you would most likely do a Higher Apprenticeship. A Higher Apprenticeship is a level 4 or 5 apprenticeship designed for school leavers aged 18 and above. Lasting three or four years, Higher apprenticeships are equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree (level 4) or a foundation degree (level 5) and can provide a stepping stone to a Bachelor’s degree and then a Master’s in your chosen profession.
Alternatively, if you didn’t get the A Levels in the subjects you require for your chosen career or wish to enter an industry with other A Level requirements, you can apply for an Intermediate (Level 2) or Advanced apprenticeship (Level 3). This way, you can gain the industry knowledge and practical experience you need to progress in your career.
The requirements vary between apprenticeships, but you’ll need to be 16 or older, live in the UK and not be in full-time education to apply for any of the above apprenticeships.
