Need a hand choosing the right path?
So you legally have to be in some form of education until you're 18. After that, your next step is entirely down to you. Whenever someone is asked 'what do you want to do with your life?' it is very rare to receive a definitive answer. Lots of people are never 100% sure what they want to do, but the way to find this out is to try new things and step out of your comfort zone.
