Picking a pathway after A Level results
Posted 14 August 2018
For many, University will seem like the only route but more and more students will be looking for other options that will equip them with a specific skills set.
Students across England are anticipating their A Level results on Thursday, with their grades impacting not just their immediate future, but also their long-term career choice. With mounting worries about being saddled with lifelong debts and as the relevance of many higher education courses is coming under intense scrutiny, vocational training and apprenticeships are now firmly established alternatives to university as a gateway to fulfilling, well-paid careers in a range of sectors.
It’s a common misconception that apprenticeships are mainly for those working in the trade sector, and as one of the UK’s biggest construction sector Awarding and Assessment Organisations, NOCN is well equipped to provide students with all the information they need about the high quality and innovative courses and qualifications available to build their future in Construction. But it’s important to know that Apprenticeships can provide a pathway to a wide range of careers in sectors such as Healthcare and the NHS to Agriculture and Horticulture, the possibilities are endless!
