"What do you want to be?" is a pretty big question to ask.
At the age of 16, we don't expect you to know exactly what you want to do. We're pretty lucky in the UK, there are a lot of options available to us when it comes to the different stages of our education. The three main routes available to you when it comes to further education are:
- School route - A-Levels
- College route - BTEC/vocational qualifications
- Employment route - Apprenticeships
Each option has the potential to progress, resulting in qualification top-ups, university degrees and employment. There is no single route to university or single route to employment. Your options are wide open!
