If you are thinking about doing an apprenticeship - go for it! You can learn all the skills you would in higher education but you also have the opportunity to settle into the workplace and learn skills you wouldn't learn in college such as the confidence that comes with applying your skills hands on. Plus you are earning whilst learning.
