Stay away from Apprenticeships, the pay you get is down right slave labour. Even when you finish, the jobs still dont pay much unless your some sort of expert specialist.
Go join the ADF, not only do you get tax free pay, you get a shitload of benefits like full medical, housing etc
As for getting told what to do all the time, your going to get that as an apprentice anyway, probably worse!
