    Following my Degree Course in 2009, I applied for a multitude of apprenticeships in my niche field, I was not offered 1 interview despite being passionate about my subject. It transpired I was barred from applying because I was “over educated” by taking a degree. I am now 55 years old still unemployed and frustrated at the volume of course provisions for 16-24 years old who largely have no mortgage or dependent children to support. The old apprenticeship system is prejudiced in favour of the young, does not comply with the Equal Opportunities Act and need overhauling. I am happy to trade working for less than minimum wage, because I am desperate to learn the industry standards in my chosen field.

      The whole system is appalling. If you are older than 24 years old, you are on the scrap heap.
