    I look at apprenticeships.org.uk quite often and most of the time there is nothing interesting. But today I found some great apprentice vacancies at Birmingham City University, the pay is terrible (£95 week), but if you're very young then this is a great apprenticeship.

    Because you have to register to find out more about jobs, and most people don't like to register, I'll just copy and paste here if that is ok.

    Have you had any response back yet?

    I also applied thinking that after the first year pay will be ok. Not that I think I'll get anywhere, they're after younger people.
