Congratulations on achieving your results. You have done well, worked hard and developed your skills over the last two or three years. You now have your results, and whatever they are you are looking forward to an exciting future. It might not be what you had planned initially, but it is your future.
Over the last 2 years you have developed your personality and skills including team work, independent learning and meeting deadlines. These skills are valuable whether you are going to university, taking a gap year, moving into work or an apprenticeship. Be proud.
University: Take a minute, if you have changed your plans or your next step is not so clear please don’t panic. If University is still your plan, check out the http://bit.ly/CareersUCAS and look at the clearing options, they will guide you. It might be that you want to look at a local college to complete an Access to higher education course to keep your options open.
Apprenticeships – There are some fantastic employers out there looking for the ideal apprentice. Is that you? Apprenticeships are a great way to learn and earn, look at the vacancies http://bit.ly/Careersapprenticesearch there are some great opportunities. It may be through a stepping stone process. Working through the different levels, helps you to get to know the business and develops your skills further. So you can gain more responsibility within the business. Alternatively, higher or degree apprenticeships, where you are completing higher and degree level qualifications over 3 or 4 years with a company and earning a salary.
