Apprenticeship after GCSEs or A-Levels?

Did/would you do your Apprenticeship straight after GCSEs or A-Levels?

I did it about 8 months after my GCSEs. Whilst I'm not a fan of summer holidays and that, Im glad I didn't go straight into one as It obviously is a massive reality check, especially from dossing about at school to working full time in a professional environment

I am in year 10 atm but am doing my GCSE's a year earlier. Not too sure what I will be doing in year 11 tbh. Maybe AS levels.

Do your whole school do that or is it the classes that are in the more advanced groups?

A local school near me is getting about 70% of children in year 10 to take GCSEs early. Crazy!!

Our school did GCSEs in Year 10 too.
The problem is, whilst it's brilliant for young people to get qualifications, they're making it too easy so everyone is going to be going for the same jobs, with the same qualifications!

Could do more harm in the long run than good
