Choices in Year 13

Here is a list of options after year 12/13

 

 

Apprenticeship

 

Apprenticeships give you the chance to earn while you learn and many companies offer them.  For information and to search for a vacancy visit the National Apprenticeship Site or the Connexions Berkshire vacancy site.

 

 

Job without training

 

There are many jobs which do not include any qualified training. 

 

 

Further Education

 

Do a foundation course in subjects such as art and design or dance, retake your A Levels or change subject completely.  Go to our further education section to search for local colleges and opportunities.

 

 

Higher Education

 

University is still a popular option despite the increase in fees. For some careers you will need to do a degree (e.g. medicine) but for others you may not. Other options are part-time study, online study or studying abroad. Speak to your careers adviser or teachers to discuss the best options for you. 

 

 

Self-employment

 

Visit our starting my own business section for further information.

 

 

Year out

 

Some young people decide to have a year out after school or Sixth Form College before starting a career or continuing on to higher education.  Visit our volunteering and gap year section for ideas and information.
