You may need to change employers to complete your apprenticeship

The length of your apprenticeship depends on the range of skills you can learn with your employer, and how quickly you master them. If your apprenticeship qualification requires assessment of skills not covered by your employer, you may need to change employers to complete your apprenticeship – this is pretty common.
