Are you waiting for your A Level exam results?  Deciding what is the “right” step after leaving college or school can be really stressful. And it’s not a decision that you should make quickly.

Maybe you’ve got pressures from friends to join them at the university they’ve decided to go to, you don’t get the grades you need to get into uni, or you just don’t want to start life with a huge amount of debt from tuition fees. At the end of the day it’s your future so you have to be 100% happy with the decision.

The range of options can feel a bit like a minefield, go to uni/ don’t go to uni/ do an apprenticeship/ go into vocational education / go straight into a job- the choices are endless.  But where to start?

AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) is urging school leavers to consider vocational education and apprenticeships as a way to secure employment, gain experience and a qualification if you don’t achieve the marks they need for first choice University courses. Not many people realise that you can have a great career without going to university, for example if you get the AAT Accounting Qualification you can become a chartered accountant quicker than someone who has been to university!

If you have any questions about what to do next then join our live webTV show with Aimee Bateman who is a career coach and recruitment advisor and Harry Collins, who decided to do an apprenticeship rather than go to university and Emma Mason who started a university course and then quit to start an apprenticeship instead.
