Apprenticeships are shit, that’s a given. But I am glad I did mine. I don’t think working for a big company will help you much. I worked for a small business doing general building, so I learnt everything. If I were you I’d see if you could carry on your apprenticeship but with a smaller firm. Don’t say about it to your current company though.
