    Hi guys, I've just finished my college course, with my portfolio to start/complete. So could I work for another firm as an improver or self employed subby, and finish my portfolio? Due to a change in circumstances I need to be in a job earning more money but I want to finish my apprenticeship. It's a catch 22.

    Best policy would be to complete your apprenticeship.....

    I never had a bonafide apprenticeship and finished college with my technical certs without ever working on site.

    I became an improver on minimum wage and slowly slowly built up my portfolio.

    Yo could complete your portfolio and am2 within a 1-2 years, if you stick with your firm as an apprentice.

    Going self employed would only get you improver status, it would take longer to qualify on this route. Can you get weekend work for a bit more cash? Or ask for a slight raise?

    Finish your apprenticeship if you can, whilst things might be good at the moment with plenty of work around you would be better placed if things took a dip and you have a proper apprenticeship behind you.
