Next Steps

Before you decide on your next steps think about whether the job you want asks for a specific qualification – if so you will need to find a course that can offer you that.

These are a few of your options for further learning:


College

You can study at college full time, or study part time alongside a job. 

Colleges offer loads of different subjects and courses so you're bound to find something that interests you. This includes subjects you might have done at school, but also things like plumbing, office skills, or beauty therapy.

Continuing to study will keep your options open when it comes to your career. Afterwards you could go on to higher education or get a better job thanks to your qualification.  


Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are work-based training - so you'll work alongside real professionals as you learn.

You'll also be earning a real wage and getting a headstart on your career - 85% of apprentices remain in employment.

There are hundred of options when it comes to choosing an apprenticeship, from engineering and construction to catering and tourism. 


Traineeships

This is a great place to start if you're still feeling uncertain about your future.
