Hi, I went to AFCO last week and it got me really excited to join. I'm 17 and starting an apprenticeship just for something to do for however long the application process takes (According to my careers advisor the role I'm applying for would be about 6 months until I get a start date). But I'm doing the apprenticeship literally only so I'm not sat at home all day until join, I'll just be sat in an office until I join the RN... So theoretically if I did apply tomorrow and everything went smoothly, and I passed through all of the application process, what would the Navy's opinion on me leaving the apprenticeship early? Would they encourage me to stick with the full 12 months of the apprenticeship or would they be fine with me quitting it to join as soon as I can? I can definitely understand why they would want me to stick with it but hopefully they would also realise how enthusiastic I am to join.
